It would make more sense to store the energy in some kind of

examples of that kind of thing.

Presumably an international grid could be established if one
wanted to think really big.

    Hmmm, cables with a few hundred KV and salt water, an interesting
mix - especially for the repair crews.

    On a more serious note I think it is the case that the American
continent has sufficient desert area for power generation.

    Wow - and it's been there for a good while too. I'm impressed (but
I'd still hate to be on the repair crew).

I should of remembered to put the smiley after that.
Someone may have taken that as a serious idea.
