The Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator (or RTG for short) is a type of generator from IndustrialCraft2 Experimental. It can produce between 1 and 32 EU/t of low voltage electricity using Pellets of RTG Fuel placed inside it.

The energy production rate rises exponentially with the amount of pellets, with 1 pellet producing 1 EU/t and 6 producing 32 EU/t (in other words doubled by each additional pellet). Although the generation rate is relatively low and the pellets are fairly expensive, they will never get used up, making the RTG the most efficient infinite energy source in standard IC2.

Unlike a Nuclear Reactor, an RTG will never emit radiation, overheat or explode in any way.
