Imagine all the extraterrestrial matter that earth absorbs over a given time frame (multiple of years, to account for the orbital path). If all of that is converted (perfectly) to energy at E=mc^2, is that figure greater than the energy that hit earth in the form of solar radiation, during that time?

Two estimates of mass influx quoted in the reference are 1.7 and 2.2 X 10^8 kg/year
