According to Expansion Techtonics, geological data support the claim that the Earth has been gaining matter over geological time. The source of this new matter and the specific manner of how the Earth gains it remains a mystery which affects the viability of Expansion Tectonics. This article proposes a new mechanism for matter gain. In summary, based on the electric nature of our universe, it is suggested that this gain is primarily fed by solar particles that are transferred to the Earth's interior by electron and proton conduction. It is argued that such a process is plausible and has support based on theoretical and empirical studies appearing in existing scientific literature.
