Which solar panels are you using? If you are connecting to a bat box, they need to be the slim solar panels connected with blue alloy wire and that is blutricity you are generating. If it is the big box like solar panels, you connect them to a MFE or MFSU, with ideally glass fibre cable.

Hope that helps.

The batbox will accept power on all sides but the one with the dot. If the dot is facing the input wire, it will not accept power. Try turning the batbox around with a wrench.

How far away is your solar panel from the bat box? Copper cable is very poor for long distance. best bet for solar panels is to use tin wires. Next to no power loss. The only kick is that they can only hold something (correct me if I'm wrong) like 5EU/tick which is fine for start game power generation.
