      No we don’t get energy from Saturn or any other planet. The moon is responsible for the tides and we can harvest tidal energy so that’s the closest we get to harnessing energy from our solar system (other than solar energy of course).

      In addition to what Stephen said when we look at the energy we use today for energy we use fossil fuels, biomass from plants, wind, tidal, solar and hydro energy for providing our energy needs.
