    have my coop for a month now and thought a solar exhaust fan might be good to have.....its working real well..I live in N.C and it has been really hot....air is recirculated about 5 times a minute..inside has been great....

    I would love to see where you got it and how much it was. I really need one in my coop and have no electric to the coop now. Please post pictures or a link.

    Thanks for sharing the link! My husband is in the middle of designing a solar powered fan for my future coop that will be activated when the temperature in the coop exceeds a set temp. This will be great for him to look at!

    I desperately need something like this, but this one looks rather small. How large is your coop?
