Solar Plexus Chakra is also known as Manipura.
The main developmental age for this energy centre is 14-21 but the first, very clear expression of solar plexus energy is seen during the ‘terrible 2’s’ as this is the centre of our personal will. Humans don’t tend put off the expression of will until they reach 14. However, it is in our teens that we (hopefully) learn appropriate expression of will as well as appropriate use of personal power.

The solar plexus chakra is a weak spot for leaking energy. People who are receptive and sensitive, for instance empaths and intuitives, are especially prone to leak energy from this chakra. Others are then able to tap into this energy as a form of psychic vampyrism. Tools such as the tarot essence and meditating with the appropriate cards can be useful for protecting the Solar Plexus chakra.
