Harvesting electric charge from lightning
Storms occur on the seas.
The sea is an expanse of water.
Water being a good conductor of electricity, the electric charge in the lightning bolt is diffused over the entire expanse of water to the farthest extent.
It then only remains to have placed conductors, labelled '3', into the water so that when the electric charge is diffused in the water, some of it will travel via the conductor, '3', to it's exiting wire, labelled 3a.
These wires, "3a", are consolidated into undersea transmission cables, labelled "3b", that travel to the shore, exiting in wire labelled "3c".
This wire, "3c" is then connected to a safety unit (discussed in a subsequent slide).

A rig, labelled '2' can be configured with a lightning-attracting rod, labelled '1' in it's center, going through into the sea water below;  and surrounded by a net, labelled "2b" in which conductors, labelled '3', connected to wires, labelled "3a" are placed.
When a lightning bolt hits the lightning-attracting rod, '1', it travels down into the sea water and disperses.
The conductors, '3', placed via nets, "2b", conduct a small amount of charge each to their wires, "3a".
To be on the safer side, the rig is tugged to the places in the sea where storms are happening, by a remote-controlled ship, labelled "1bb".

The safety unit
The safety unit consists of a Pattern recognition detector, labelled '4', that detects the current-voltage specification of the electric charge conducted to it from the conductor, labelled "3c".
Based on the incoming current-voltage, a switch is thrown that routes the charge via a wire, labelled '7', to a switch box, labelled "8a", handling that incoming current-voltage specification.
Based on the required output voltage-current specification, another switch in another switch box, labelled "8b", is thrown that will route the charge to a transformer, labelled '9', that will convert that incoming current-voltage charge to the required current-voltage specification.
The standardised electricity thus obtained is then sent to long-distance transmission wires, labelled "10", which conduct it to places of utilisation and need.

The nets with the conductors
Nets are configured with conductors, '3', attached to them at intervals so that they are spaced apart in the water.
The nets float in the water, buoyed up by buoys and floaters attached to the top of the net.

Wire consolidation into undersea long-distance transmission cables
The wires, "3a", from the conductors, "3" are consolidated into undersea long-distance transmission cables, "3b", exiting at the safety unit in wire "3c".

Patent pending.
