Pretty close to it. I think it's a bit more than that, but not much. And
yes, during daylight. You use Moonshine for power in the dark, and I ain't
talkin' anything reflected from Luna.
Alternative energy is a fun hobby. I once powered a small radio (AM) with
a tea kettle on top of a wood-burning stove. bi-metallic junction, copper
plate and a nickel one (?? Zinc?? I forget).
