Energy Transmission Pylons help extend energy grids and connect more Extractors or energy sources. This in turn helps Extractors overdrive, producing more metal. Pylons can also provide a fast way to power defenses that rely on the energy grid. Note that over short distances or in low-energy situations using energy producers like solar collectors to connect grids can be a more cost efficient alternative.
