The concept of SPS-WPT envisions the generation of electric power by solar energy in space for use on earth. The system would consist of an orbiting platform to gather solar energy and convert it to electric and microwave power in space. A microwave transmission system would be employed to send the electric power to earth. A power-receiving antenna (rectenna), on the ground or offshore, would convert and collect the transmitted microwave energy in a form of electricity suitable for the common electric utility distribution infrastructure. Some environmental and health concerns are discussed
