Encyclopedia description

Solar Energy Arrays are huge fields of highly efficient solar panels. They function by converting more than 98% of all incoming sunlight into energy, then beaming it into a remote receiver station via focused microwave beam. SEAs do not have any material output at all; thus, no moving infrastructure is required, and the converters can be run totally unmanaged, at least theoretically, for prolonged periods of time. Solar Energy Arrays are most commonly placed in polar orbits around suns, but they can be found almost as often orbiting planets with direct beaming of power to planetary receptors.
