If this wall gets built with solar panels, democrats will declare solar energy to part of the "far right" agenda and a symbol of white supremacy.

Has anybody run this idea by a scientist?

"Wire has a inherent resistance and at lower voltages over long distances that resistance adds up in a significant amount of power loss."

"Instead of a consolidated square with each panel a short distance from the transformers the panels on the wall would be on a long line with panels some a few dozen yards to others being hundreds of miles from the transformers. With low voltage dc running over hundreds of miles the power loss for the farthest panels would result in no electricity reaching the transformer."

Then there are the transmission lines needed to bridge the miles between the newly constructed wall and any place that might have a use for it.

I like the idea, but won't the Mexicans just destroy the solar panels with rocks, bullets, graffiti?

Given the length of transmission lines, not sure the idea even works in the first place.

That was my first thought.

There will be a lot of vandalism. It would be quite a sport launching cans of paint over the wall ...

If you make it a profit for both countries Mexico would protect it as well.

Why not email your concerns to the WH, maybe you can be chosen to give your ideas along with others. Work together.
