    Default Solar powered exhaust vents for buildings?

    Anyone here use them? I'm looking at replacing some electric powered ones and would like to find the roof vents that are really well constructed of metal, not plastic.

    I've found a few with the solar panel separate from the vent itself. And I've found some with a flat panel on the top of the vent, as well as one with solar panel that is hinged to the top of the vent.

    Suggestions, ideas and brands would be extremely helpful.

    Thanks.

    I found that site yesterday also, passed it on to my DH to do some research, to see if perhaps in addition to putting them on the barn if they might help with the house as well.

    The prices were not unreasonable either.

    They are also apparently eligible for the new green tax credit.

    I didn't have time to check all the various state incentives that were linked from that site, but I will have to make a note of it.

    Thank you so much for this link, and Vineyridge for this thread. Nice product. I have a new client in another state that wants to find all possible financial incentives for new, green equestrian construction, and the linked site has an incredible list per state !

    Here are some more links:

    http://www.solarroofvent.com/
    http://www.airvent.com/homeowner/pro...olarRoof.shtml

    There are probably dozens more out there, depending on what you are looking for.

    I'm looking for attic venting without a gable.
