The latter

 A solar power station in geostationary orbit – is now on the drawing board and has been given a sky- high price tag of 2 trillion yen ($21 billion).The project, conceived by the Japanese government and industry researchers, will see a space-based solar power station built in orbit 22,360 miles (36,000 km) above the earth. The station will generate 1 gigawatt of power from sunlight and beam the energy down to a receiving station where it can be used to power almost 300,000 homes
