Not really a new source of power

The steps I followed in compiling these ‘sustainable technology’ posters, were described in my March 20 post.

As shown in this third example, these steps are:
1.     objective: find a new source of power
2.     secondary factors: collaged word pattern
3.     diagram: solar panels
4.     transform: combine with a rectenna and move to remote location...A rectenna is something I’d never heard of, but apparently it's a rectifying antenna, used to convert microwave energy into direct current electricity. 
5.     Space-based solar panels (Needless to say, I can’t claim to be the first to think up this combination)
