  •  Far more practical (2+ / 0-)

    Flying electric generators seem a lot more practical than solar satelites.

    Why put equipment up 22236 miles (at $3000-$5000 per pound) when 3-6 miles will do the trick?   When the very turbines that generate the power can be used to hoist it aloft in the first place?  When you can assemble the equipment on the ground instead of in space?   When you can generate power for 1.4 cents per kilowatt-hour?

    Even the Audubon Society is endorsing wind power and FEG have the potential to fly above the birds.
