The short take: Pacific Gas & Electric is planning to beam solar energy from a Solaren Company geosynchronous satellite down to Earth - or rather to California.
This is exciting as all get out, and will be an excellent test of the true colours of the various "green" groups out there: are they really about cleaning things up, or about knocking us all back to the 19th century?
Can't wait for launch and the first few megawatts to start beaming their way down.
no grr needed!
