One headline said it all: How to Make a Liberal Hate Solar Energy! Donald Trump took a proposal from a contractor and has left snowflake liberals everywhere speechless!
Put solar panels on his 50 foot high wall, create green energy, and pay for the wall with the profits.
I know at this point you are chuckling aren’t you?
The plan, besides giving liberals a huge headache trying to decide what to do next, is brilliant! Lease parts of the wall to solar utilities. Sell some of the energy to Mexico to finance the wall, as well as, the U.S. grid. Given current costs of photovoltaic cells, the wall should generate hundreds of MW of power and self-finance in an energy generation over a span of 20-40 years.
Sounds great to me! President Donald Trump pitched an idea for a border wall covered in solar panels in a meeting with Republican lawmakers on Tuesday. Trump said that the “electricity generated” by the panels could be “used to pay for the cost” of the wall.
In the meeting at the White House today with Republican Congressional leaders, President Trump spent some time talking up his latest idea for the border wall. According to 3 people with direct knowledge of the meeting, Trump floated the idea that the wall could be covered in solar panels and the electricity generated used to pay for the cost.
Trump said his vision was a wall 40 feet to 50 feet high and covered with solar panels so they’d be “beautiful structures,” the people said. The President said that most walls you hear about are 14 feet or 15 feet tall but this would be nothing like those walls. Trump told the lawmakers they could talk about the solar-paneled wall as long as they said it was his idea. One person cautioned that the President wasn’t presenting the solar-paneled wall as the definite solution.
Trump’s proposed wall on the Southern border was the centerpiece of his campaign and has had liberals in a fury since he brought it into the discussion. Plans for the wall have been slowed by a Congress unwilling to allocate funding for it. Most lawmakers see the wall as little more than symbolic.
The proposal to cover the wall with solar panels was submitted when the U.S. requested designs earlier this year. According to the AP, companies winning contracts and being asked to build prototypes may be announced this month.
Thomas Gleason of North Las Vegas, Nevada, and his company, Gleason Partners LLC, submitted a formal proposal to build it.
“We proposed a wall that pays for itself, and it looks pretty darned nice,” Gleason said when he turned in the proposal in April. He said the project could pay for itself in about five years.
I think we should add windmills as well! We could also build it out of recycled materials! Lets go very green! Anything to put liberals in such a dilemma. Maybe he should ask Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio to the ground-breaking ceremony!
It is too bad Obama’s favorite solar panel company, Solyndra, went out of business after wasting millions of taxpayer monies. They could have provided the solar panels!
