Solar vent fan
I think this is a good place for this thread... If not maybe a mod will move it.
It gets here in the summer. Like 110 in the shade kind of hot. I have tried those little window mounted solar vent fans and they work. But I was thinking. Lets go pruis on this. I was thinking, Hook up a dash mounted solar panel to the hvac fan and put it on a switch. So when I park my car (rip mousey) I can flip a switch and bring in a continuous supply of outside air without draining the battery. I would mount my panel in the back between the speakers so I could use my reflective shield. All one would have to do is remember to switch from recirculate to fresh air. In theory this would work. The problem would be. Does a solar panel make enough watts to effectively spin the blower motor? OR would the low voltage burn the motor up? Am I on to something here?
Guys I realize it is winter and my SS is now gone, but I want to do this to my truck. And help others out that daily drive their B/D-bodys or any car for that matter.
I would greatly love some input on this.
