 It would make more sense to put the things which consume the most power into orbit rather than try to beam the energy and distribute it. For example our manufacturing industries with raw materials being exomined from captured asteroids.
That way the earth could be mainly Bio based and space tech based.

Imagine shipping containers full of products parachuting down to distribution points all over the planet.
