Transport Light by Optic Fiber - Save Energy

  My idea is to supply light using optic fiber instead of the electric wires to save the energy. As we all know that when electricity travels through wires, it loses its power (potential difference). Hence we lose lots of energy when electricity travels from the power station to our home.
  My idea is very simple... here are the steps:
1) Generate laser rays (or other high intensity rays) at the power station and supply it to home via fiber optic. Light loss will be less than 1% in fiber optic.
2) At home, change the laser ray light to normal light using a device.
3) Use any opaque glass material to scatter the light in all directions.
  This is my basic idea. There may be theoretical loop holes, but can be corrected.
