Blind_Cameleon has given you the correct answer.

The electric field intensity of Earth close to its surface is approximately 100 volts / meter.

Air breaks down at 3000 kv / m.

If the potential at infinity is taken equal to zero, the Earth’s potential is equal to 0.07 volt.

In electrical engineering the potential of the Earth is assumed to be zero.

The Earth’s capacitance is 700 micro farad.
Thanks & Regards
