For the same reason the night sky isn't blindingly bright with an infinite number of stars in an infinite Universe.
And those are stars, some 384 * 10 ^ 26 watts a piece, and you still don't see the majority of them. That's 256 * 10 ^ 13 times the total human energy consumption. Now, imagine the stars were as faint as our radio signals, which a barely a small portion of our energy use and only a part of them are irradiated into space. We might not even know there were stars.
