Anyone use a solar attic fan?

Is there a ridge vent? Did it have soffit vents?

I personaly would not buy a solor fan. A ridge vent vents the whole roof not just a circle. Power vents leave hot moist air trapped in the rafter bays.
Ridge vents have no parts to fail, and work 24/7, no matter if the sun is shining or not.
