A system consisting of one or more satellites carrying photovoltaic panels that capture solar energy and convert it to electricity for storage and transmission to earth by a microwave energy beam. The earth station absorbs the microwave energy beam in a pressurized pool of water with an insulated dome cover. The dome cover allows the microwaves to enter but turns back the heat emanating from the pool. Succeeding microwave energy beams from the satellites heat the water which transfers the energy to another pool that is maintained in a constant boiling state to develop steam which drives a turbine that turns a generator and produces electric energy. The satellites follow a slightly off-polar orbit which assures their passing over large areas of the earth while at the same time following the earth's rotation assuring repeated passage over the same stations.
