I'm sure your theory has been thought of before, it at least sounds familiar. The thing with crop circles is many look so damn cool we want to believe they're alien in nature with some planet-saving message. Until we get some concrete proof I'll settle for the "drunken students with planks in the night" version.

Have you ever been a drunk student? I have and I have known many. None that would have the skill in an inebriated state to pull off something so big, detailed and often symmetrical without being able to see it from the air.

But then you must consider this:
If power is so critical to maintain, it would likely be better spent in an entirely different endeavor.

If they're beaming something here from another planet, it would be coming in on a straight line. That would put a large constraint on what areas of the Earth could be affected from a given star system in the distance. And if they didn't hit a point normal to the surface, the circle would be skewed unless they knew what the skew would be and corrected for it. You'd also expect orbiting satellites or random space junk would occasionally get in the way, screwing up the pattern. In addition, there have been reports of light orbs, but not light beams. So overall, I think this is easily debunked.
Crop circles have been debunked and filed away in a large dusty warehouse of nothing.
