The heat produced can be converted into power, also the heat of local homes, apartments, and businesses are being used.

Third, is the Solar Power, which is more exciting than the massive solar panels, and installed the platform above the planet, beaming a wireless electricity toward the Earth’s surface. This solar power in space no need to take up valuable real state, and no energy fluctuations caused by weather. Microwave energy would be received by the antenna array and converted back into electricity. Fourth, The Solar Wind consists of an enormous number of charges particles, emitted by the sun at very high speeds. 300 meters of copper wire is attached to a two-meter wide receiver and a 10-meter sail that could generate sufficient
