    I foresee problems with directional beams being interrupted on purpose by another satellite.
    I also wonder why the single none stop source of energy available on planet earth,the tide, has not had more generation investment and development.
    Until the moon moves out of orbit the tide will never stop turning and flowing at some point on the planet.
    It even still flows under the ice caps.
    Its easier to get to the generators too

    We have wind, tidal, geothermal as well as solar all available on the planet, the problem is people don't want big ugly generators where they can see them and there's always the green lot that will protest things being built in the water or on the coast and so on, there seems to be a lot of short sightedness and ignorance on the whole thing..
