The proposed Lunar-Solar Power (LSP) System collects solar power on the moon. The power is converted to beams of microwaves and transmitted to fields of microwave receivers on Earth that provide electric power to regional power grids. An American or International Lunar Base could significantly decrease the development cost of the LSP System. The LSP System can provide plentiful and non-polluting power. LSP can accelerate the growth of the world economy.
