You know that crazy star that our world revolves around? The really big one — the sun. That is your own personal nuclear reactor, parked safely 93 million miles away from you. It’s spouting off FREE POWER, and all you gotta do is harness that bad boy.

We’re looking at “…4.26 million metric tons per second, which produces the equivalent of 38,460 septillion watts (3.846×1026 W) per second.” There’s a bit of energy loss as it crosses our galaxy, and that’s facing away from us, but we wouldn’t notice the deficit. It’s kind of difficult to fathom how many lightbulbs we could spark up, or more importantly, how many tons of fossil fuels we would save.
