At a rally in Cedar Pez, Iowa on Wednesday night, Trump said: \"We are considering building this wall into a solar wall so that it can create energy and pay for itself . \"
Mexico will have to pay a lot less.
Good, right?
\"Trump previously put forward the idea of solar panels at a closed meeting --

Gleason-based partner Limited proposes to cover certain parts of the wall with solar panels to provide electricity for lighting, sensors and patrol stations on the wall.
Gleeson said selling electricity to utilities could pay construction costs in 20 years or less and suggested that electricity could also be sold to Mexico.
Managing partner Thomas Gleeson said he wasn\'t sure if his company was still preparing for the contract, but added, \"We did what we wanted to accomplish, this makes the president aware of the possibility.
\"Department of Homeland Security spokesman David Lapan said that no one in the Department of Homeland Security shared the proposals submitted with the White House, although the bidding company had already made several proposals public.
