It is more a matter of how long does this small unit take to charge a battery through a charge controller that you can find in this catalog. I would suggest a larger solar panel of say 45 Watts or so connected to a charge controller and the battery hooked to your inverter. When the battery is fully charged the fan most surely would run off the charge controller untill the voltage in the battery was reduced to a set amount and then the inverter would start beeping.

When in ideal sunshine, the panel will produce a maximum of 7 watts. The panel cannot be connected directly to an inverter or a fan. You would have to use this panel to charge a battery, then hook up an inverter to the battery, then plug the fan into the inverter. A small panel like this will work, but will not produce enough power to run the fan in real time. Depending on the size of the fan and how often you want to run it, you may need to charge the battery for a few days in order to run the fan for a short period. If you know the draw of the fan, and how often(hrs/day) you want to use it, call 1-800-221-0516 to talk to our staff to estimate your needs.
