Electricity converting lightning rod

The electricity converting lightning rod will convert an electric charge in to power. I want the general public, electric companies, sky scrapers to use this. I thought of this when I heard that an electric charge could power a city for about two days. It works when an electric charge hits the rod then is transferred by electrical wires into battery cells which then discharge over a few days into the main power source. Then that will power homes for about two days.

How Math & Science Can Help Power My Idea

Earth science is because of the weather involved with the thunderstorm. Physics is involved with transporting the electricity to the battery cells then releasing it slowly into the main power source. Engineering is involved by putting the energy converting lightning rod on top of a skyscraper or other tall building so the electricity will hit it, and also the design of the lightning rod.
