Go Green NASA!

An article from Space News (http://spacenews.com/commentaries/110620-green-nasa.html ) saying "NASA Go Green!":
And after conducting extensive study of solar power satellites that have the potential for beaming power to Earth 24 hours a day, and after acknowledging the feasibility of the concept, why did NASA stop short of at least a demonstration system, so that commercial enterprises could take over as they have with communications satellites?

Here also is an interesting idea from India on Space Solar Power for disaster relief:

There is a new pro-SBSP group: Solar High at http://solarhigh.org/
"The Solar High Study Group is a small team of senior engineers and policy analysts who are working to make space-based solar power a reality in the United States and around the world."
