Sorry Karl, I can't think of the Heinlein SBSP story. The only one that comes to mind is 'Sunstroke' by David Kagan, which really isn't a juvenile.

Ken was right!
Sunstroke is a sensational solar themed novel. Hard Science SF. Art Bell's favorite author. Heard Mr. Bell interview Dr David Kagan on his Coast to Coast radio show. Bought it and read it three times. Wish he'd write more.

Sunstroke by Dr David Kagan is now becoming reality. Japan and the US are building Space Based Solar Power Systems that Kagan predicted. Hope they won't end up as horrific.
