Answer: 
I bought a 24 volt power brick and a double pole double throw switch.
When the sun is out I use solar, when it's not I can switch over.

Answer: 
No however... if you look up "How to Hook Up a 24 Volt Transformer to a 110 Volt Outlet!" it'll tell you how to plug your unit into a 110 outlet and use it day and night. Keep in mind, buying a solar powered fan is useless, if you're going to use your house current to run it!

Answer: 
Yes, I imagine it will run with a 24v battery but, you'd have to hook the solar panel up to the battery to keep it charged otherwise, it'd cost you to recharge the battery every time it got low!

Thank you for contacting MasterFlow ... In theory, our solar motors are rated to a maximum of 24 volts, but since we have never tested this design, we cannot recommend this adaptation for this product. Any non-approved modifications to this product would void the 5 year warranty. You may choose to review the PRSOLAR Hybrid.

Would there be a way to add to the wire length so that I could put the panel in the sun and the fan in a remote location about 30 feet away. Thanks!

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great fan The fan works great, even during cloudier day it will run. I purchased this fan for a greenhouse and was able to put it inside the building and still get enough light to run at full speed. Only draw back is it comes with only 10 feet of cable. Definitely would recommend this to someone looking to install a fan were the don't have or want electricity! April 12, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Gable Install minus humming noise This was a simple install. Made a rectangular frame from wood beam 2 by 4 to mount the fan to the side vent in the attic. Placed the solar panel on roof and connected through vent to fan motor. Presto! Fan moving quickly and removing the hot air from the attic. House has never been cooler in the summer. Downside: The fan has a humming noise! The noise is noticeable in the room below the fan! Not recommending this fan since I have to listen to this noise! July 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easy to install very good features Love this solar-powered gable exhaust vent. Bought it initially to put into our shed but decided to install it in our lanai to circulate and get some heat out of there. It works great and keeps the lanai cooler. Will be buying another one to put into our shed in the near future. April 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pays 4 itself!!! I purchased this solar fan 4 years ago and I couldn't be happier! I live in Phoenix Arizona where the temperatures get up to 116 in the summer so, the temp in my attic got up to around 140 degrees, which could easily cause spontaneous combustion if anything flammable is stored in your attic! Needing more storage, I decided to put an inexpensive particle board floor in the attic and install a pull down staircase in the garage ceiling! Once I placed this fan in the front vent, the temperature has dropped to whatever it is outside and now my wife and I have tons of space to sore out items without the fear of burning down the house! My Heat pump is also in the attic and when the A/C guys come to service the unit, they tell me it's the coolest attic they've ever worked in! This fan also lowers your electric bill if you crack open the staircase and let the fan suck the heat out of your garage as well! The entire house gets cooler because of the fan sucking heat from your ceilings and garage! One quick tip. For my convenience I cut one wire and placed a switch where it's easy to turn on and off during the winter! November 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cools your attic without any extra electricty cost. 1: Face the solar panel straight south with a angle for a 1pm sun. if you do this and there are no clouds or trees, the fan is spinning real good. 2: You may have to drill new holes for the 4 brackets as you want the duct to be as close to the vent louvers as possible as to push hot air to the outside and not recirculate it. 3: 20" octagon vent louver is good size for this fan 4: The electrical connector does not easily come off, forcing you to drill a larger hole than the electrical cords diameter. 5: Check your local HD as this item is now online only item and is on clearance in retail stores.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great investment Easy to assemble and keep my attic bearable , specially on over 100 degree weather. Help the ac work good July 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by solar attic fan this product is pretty nice. although when you see the box the fan is not as big as you think. installation is very easy but I suggest you buy some 2x4's to create a simple box frame to mount it on. in cloudy situations it still works, sun is just flies.its total air output is about 1000cfm. the same a large bathroom fan.the solar panel is 10watts and the motor is 17watts. if your a late morning sleeper or 3rd shifter don't install over a bedroom. during the morning sun it really goes and can be heard as a faint whirling noise through the ceiling. May 21, 2008
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solar attic fan I bought this a few years ago. It did not do so well with only one solar panel, So I bought a second. It works very well to air out the attic at my last place. It dropped the temp in the attic from 160 degrees F to 100 and cut 25-40$ off my cooling bill and the mold cleared up. I have moved to a place without and attic and use it in the foundations to dry it out and also move it to my work shed from time to time. It sure beats stringing electric cords or permanant wiring.
