Sustainable Solar?
    A proposal by Sustainable Technology, Inc. to incorporate solar panels in a border wall raises questions about vulnerability. ABP first addressed this issue two days ago when we looked at a design different from the proposals by Sustainable Technology, Inc.
     It is not clear how the curved solar panels will work, but they must include solar cells and some kind of protective cover. It would seem that any design that included these elements would be vulnerable to vandalism, especially gun fire from Mexico. Moreover, the choice of mesh for the lower wall raises questions about penetration using powered saws or a cutting torch.
