Hey Yash! Very awesome question!

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/why-cant-we-extract-electricity-from-lightning-10162498.html
^ You can find most of the answers there as to why we don't harvest electricity from lightning.

The majority of the reason deals with cost. Holding that much power and storing it within a very short time is very expensive and if it doesn't work, will be very unsafe and costly.

Doesn't mean its not impossible though! Who knows, maybe some day we can harvest electricity from lightning and we'll never have to burn anythign ever again :)
