Going Solar : Cooling the Green House

The weather became to warm to keep the green house closed up . and opening it was not cooling it so I grabbed an old car fan from our dead car and connected it to the the Panels Charge Controller.

The panels them selves are running the cooling fan.
in the next coming months there will be more panels coming.

Our hope is to go Partially off the grid.
That is to say only running our tvs and the like using solar.
Since we can not rent all appliances like water heater and furnace are off limits.

these are 2 45 watt hits working as one the panels are amorphous. They have a shorter life but, are better suited for our climate. Monocrystaline are not suited well for our area hut have longer life . They also have diodes that turn off on Cloudy
