The new Solar Powered Fresh Air skylight lights up your home and provides proper ventilation using only the power of the sun. It features a solar panel that captures any available daylight, and uses it to recharge a highly efficient battery powered operator and control system. The solar panel does not have to be exposed to direct sunlight to function, so it will work on cloudy days and with indirect light.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good shade, expensive product. I'm glad we got the shade for our skylight, it does diffuse the light and help to keep out added heat from the hot sun. It was not very easy to install, it could use better instructions. And it's pretty expensive for what it is. July 9, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product, looks great. It's a great looking skylight and works good too. It is a little loud opening and shutting but that's not too bad. The control panel is cool and looks nice on the wall. The item does not come with flashing which is necessary to install it. Not being aware of this we had to place a separate order and wait to have the installation completed which was a bit of a pain. June 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solar power mades this one an easy option After much deliberation, on fixed or vented I am so glad I went wit the solar powered version. This makes my fifth skylight install, but my first that was done the correct way. I purchased the flashing kit, and Velux will back your installation for 10 years. Instructions were good, but youtube was very helpful. June 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My wife loves it!! I wanted to install a replacement skylight on my home with power type unit so my wife could open an close it easier ,at the time the only one that was available was a hard wired system and that would make it to difficult to do myself . Velux was the answer ,the new solar powered skylight was my answer to my dilemma, I could install it myself without hard wiring it . I ordered it along with the Velux flashing kit through Home Depot online and received it in about a week right to my door . I went online and did my home work and watched the videos that Velux offered . It took me about 8 hrs to install the unit but that's because I had never installed one before , it went smoothly ,the flashing kit made it a breeze . Well we had a hard rain storm 3 days later and it works great with the automatic rain sensor , it closed the window and not a drop of rain got on our kitchen floor. We could never leave our old skylight open if there was even a chance of rain. My wife loves it , she loves the wireless remote (no more cranking) just push a button and it goes up or down . On those hot days when we get home we push a button and within an hr the house cools down 5-10 deg and saves on air conditioning. I would highly recommend these solar units, I'm sure it will pay for itself in the long run just in the savings on AC usage October 22, 2013
