solar powered fan

Here's a 15watt solar panel powering a 12VDC fan.

15 watts is alittle bit under powered for this fan so here's two 15 watt solar panels powering it.

No battery & will be hard wired to the fan. Sun is out the fan will run. This project is infact for a dog kennel. But can be used anywhere like a work shop.

Here's the two solar panels in their frame & ganged together to produce 12VDC & 30watts which would be about 2.5amps.
They are running both the fans on hi.

So what is the payoff to doing the solar. Well, for one I didn't have to buy romex wire & run it to the kennel. And no outlet box & outlets.
Being fan is only needed in the summer take many years to cover the cost of the solar panels. Still, vary much worth doing it with the solar panels versus 120VAC.
