  •  space solar energy (3+ / 0-)

    It’s expected that space solar will be able to produce more energy than ground-based collectors because it can soak up rays around the clock, and regardless of the weather below.

    Private industry is interested in similar technology. California utility company Pacific Gas & Electric has a contract to buy space solar power from Solaren by 2016.

    And the Shimizu Corporation of Japan has recently proposed to build a 11,000-mile solar strip across the Lunar equator to capture and transfer the sun’s energy.
