History

The Solar Tower is a massive, golden skyscraper located in the heart of midtown Metropolis, only a few blocks away from the Daily Planet. The building was owned by billionaire Loren Jupiter who, along with the mysterious Omen, used it as a base of operations in which to form a new team of Teen Titans. To the general public, it was the corporate headquarters of Jupiter Industries.

Also living in the tower was fashion designer Neil Richards. Formerly a small time Carnaby Street criminal known as the "Mad Mod", Richards was responsible for designing the new team their wardrobe. [1]

The Solar Tower was outfitted with a combat training room called the Pressure Chamber. The room was equipped with a variety of high-tech weaponry and utilities that could replicate any possible threat that a combatant might face. The Pressure Room included lasers and other hard-light projectile weapons, hydraulic press battering rams and silicon containment spheres. Adjacent to the Pressure Chamber was a monitoring station with a computer network in which Jupiter could program the Chamber to tailor design it's offensive capabilities with specific targets in mind. [2]

The Titans only remained in the Tower for a few weeks before relocating to an apartment above Knock Out Video. [3]

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Solar towers were towers that used power from a sun to power up specific structures. One example was that solar towers were used a method of power for Cavik Toth's Trihexalon production factory. The towers produced a beam that could be used to power up the factory's core. The towers could be diverted if one was to damage or destroy the solar towers control box. The towers would then point at random directions. The beams were powerful enough to severely damage if not destroy a starfighter if the fighter flew into the beam.
