    Yeah… let’s not. Really, it sounds great and all, but…

    1> Trasmitting energy home will be just as lossy as collecting it locally.
    2> What effect will our method have to the ozone, cancer on the ground, etc?
    3> How much energy is wasted to maintain this in space vs on the ground?

    I think it’s better just to setup the pannels here and collect it after it’s come to us in the natural way.
