Solar fans
Are solar fans worth the money? Do they work well? Reliable? Thoughts?

I've never used one personally. Costco has some reviews on their site. Depends on if you have your required insulation and air sealed attic, etc. as to pay-back time:

If you calculate how much power you can collect in a square foot, it doesn't seem like any of the solar fans has nearly a big enough collector to power a motor big enough to really do much good.
