No, it would just mine the wormhole energy. Somehow I think we can use wormholes for better things.

Putting one end inside the sun's atmosphere might be one way of getting energy from the wormhole: don't let the plasma pass (would close it), but put a heat converter through. If anybody does it I want them to call it Lieserl :-)
