1. What kind of solar wattage should I be looking at?
2. What is the best kind of solar? Mony or Polycrystalline?
lights could be led = easy to do
fan is variable, some high efficiency could be easy, but high volume fans would need a large bank of batteries and more than a trickle charge solar.
heater = easier than an a/c but not going to happen with solar even with a max system and a large grouping of gc batteries.
And finally remember batteries will last longer if not depleted beyond 50 percent.
