Does Interior Light Give Enough Power for the Solar-Power Plumbing Vent Fan # UF53-945001 to Run?


I'm looking to get these installed on custom container offices. These offices are indoors and are lighted by interior lights. Similar to lights that inside of warehouses like Costco. Would these bad boys get enough charge from the inside lights or they must only run on solar?

The Ultra-Fab Solar-Powered Plumbing Vent # UF53-945001 is a good option for applications needing a small amount of air displacement like RVs or motorhomes. According to my contact at Ultra-Fab, these will only work with sunlight and won't receive power from any type of interior lighting.

Unfortunately, we don't have any other solar-powered options that would work for your application. You could use something like the MaxxFan # MA00-03812W, but this would need to be wired to a 12V power source.
