Solar collectors are the least cost-efficient of the energy structures, but they are also the most reliable and sturdy. When attacked, solars will curl up into armored form for 8 seconds, which reduces incoming damage to a quarter and offers excellent protection against raiders.

Tactics and Strategy[edit]

Solar Collectors are a safe and stable source of energy in the early game. Build chains of Solars between your mex to set up Overdrive. More information can be found on the Energy page.
