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 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by good product I brought this product last week and it works more than what I expected. Worth for paid money November 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by superb design and construction These newest skylights from Velux are amazing: they can be operated without an electrical supply, instead being powered from their own solar panels. A built-in rain sensor will close the window automatically. The quality of the construction and design is first rate, and they are easy to install (caveat: well built in this case means heavy). The remote is easy to program and can control many skylights with tons of options. One worry, which I hope isn't a problem in the long run: there's an internal battery charged from the solar panel, but I don't see any way to replace it if it goes bad. October 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOW this skylight is amazing I have 4 of the older ones that are hard wired and was a little apprehensive ordering this one but was certainly impressed. It's been installeda couple months now and it's spectacular. The operation in smooth and quiet, the controller is easy and impressive. October 28, 2014
