Most of these proposals call for a satillite equipped with an array of mirrors to reflect sunlight into a power-
conversion device. The collected energy could then be released to Earth via a laser or microwave emitter.
There are plans to use microwave transmitting satellites that will orbit Earth in a geostationary orbit (GEO),
about 20,000 miles above Earth. These microwave-transmitting satellites will be massive, with solar reflectors
spanning up to 2 miles. They will be capable of generating enough energy to power a major U.S. city.
