The latest hype over space based solar power (SBSP) is overshadowing a promising resource that’s much more effective: lunar solar power (LSP). Terrestrial renewable systems are the resources of the future to deposits of coal, shale, oil, natural gas, and uranium. A concept has recently been proposed for delivering solar power to Earth from space. Peter Glaser suggests that a huge satellite could actually gather solar power in space. Wavelength microwaves would send power to receivers located around the world and then supply commercial energy to a given region. This source of energy is much more effective than sunlight because it can surpass rain, clouds, dust, and even smoke. The problem with these SBSP satellites is that the cost to implement this program is ridiculous. Fortunately, LSP is a natural satellite available for development. Earth to moon power beams are already being operated in Puerto Rice and receive 10% more energy and are faster than conventional methods. The moon receives light year round except during a full lunar eclipse which only occurs once a year for three hours and other alternative energy sources can fill in this short gap. The solar flux to the lunar surface is predictable and dependable. The energy beamed to Earth is clean, safe, and reliable, and its source-the sun-is virtually inexhaustible.
