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?

HILARIOUS! Trump Checkmates Liberals... Puts Solar Panels on His Wall!

Largest solar project in a national park, Yosemite, features SolarWorld solar panels in three formats
HILLSBORO, Ore., July 27, 2011 Ð The new largest solar installation in a U.S. national park features high-performance solar panels from SolarWorld, the largest U.S. photovoltaic manufacturer for more than 35 years, in roof-mount, parking-canopy and wall-mount systems at Yosemite National Park. The installation, dedicated today in a ceremony at the El Portal Administrative Complex in the 1,189-square-mile park, marks an advance in self-sufficiency and sustainability for the treasured wilderness reserve in CaliforniaÕs Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Showcasing the work of U.S. tradesmen and factories, the 672-kilowatt project at the parkÕs administrative and maintenance center comprises a 500-kilowatt parking canopy offering cover for center employees and visitors; a 100-kilowatt roof-mount system atop a warehouse; and a 72-kilowatt system on a sloped wall of an office building. Each is composed of SolarWorld 240-watt mono-crystalline silicon solar panels made in Hillsboro, Ore., site of the companyÕs U.S. headquarters, and Camarillo, Calif., home of the longest-running U.S. solar factory. The park estimates the solar installation will supply about 12 percent of the parkÕs total power consumption.
ÒThe combination of harnessing CaliforniaÕs abundant sunlight and technology and labor provided by U.S. workers ideally suits this energy advance for Yosemite National Park,Ó Superintendent Don Neubacher said. ÒSolar panels from SolarWorld, along with the contributions of a number of other U.S.-based service firms and manufacturing enterprises, will maximize the sustainable impact on this effort to not only take care of the park but stretch the planetÕs resources.Ó
SolarWorld authorized installer Suntrek Industries Inc., based in Irvine, Calif., undertook the installation along the scenic Merced River. The park is known for granite formations, such as Half Dome and El Capitan, that legendary photographer Ansel Adams indelibly captured. ÒThis project was about protecting an amazing national park,Ó said Alex Smith, project manager for Suntrek. ÒWhat better way to protect the park than with solar energy?Ó
Kevin Kilkelly, president of SolarWorld Americas, said the company, many of whose U.S. employees date back to the early years of domestic solar manufacturing, couldnÕt be prouder to supply solar panels to help operate a jewel in the crown of the U.S. park system. ÒThis project will go down as a magical milestone for us,Ó Kilkelly said.
The projectÕs $5.8 million total cost was funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

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.

Axios reports:

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!
