Can we use static electricity on a large scale to generate electricity for the population?

    Not until we can harvest and store the electricity generated in a lightning strike, which is a huge static discharge. Static electricity is a discharge of electricity that build up between the surfaces of multiple objects, including you. A problem with static electricity is that it can be high-voltage, like lightning, which can produce 120 million volts but has low amperage or current, so it doesn’t transmit well. If you could create a super-capacitor to absorb the large charge you could then discharge electricity in a more controlled fashion.
