As to why I can't try building it myself, it's because I don't have room to work on stuff like this.
because I'm not experienced with things like soldering connections
nor do I know where to buy some of the parts.
My concern is that my shoddy workmanship may prevent the thing from working the way it could if it was built correctly
Plug in four 100 watt light bulbs instead of one 100W light bulb, and you have 4 times the power, at the same voltage. The power is the current squared times the resistance.

You're being very cryptic. If you have a way to increase current while keeping voltage the same, then let's hear. Otherwise if you're just trading voltage for current, you're no better off. How can you take power from an ordinary outlet and boost current without reducing voltage?

You're right. Solar coal, and dams, and don't forget wind, all derived their energy from the sun, nuclear is one of the few that doesn't use the sun as a source.
