The MacroVoltaic is a solar high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) industrial fan. According to the company, HVLS fan technology is unique in that it is designed to generate a column of air that flows down to the ground and outward 360 degrees. This large, slow-moving air mass moves throughout the space, mixing and circulating air. This movement of air not only offers cooling comfort in hot weather, but also provides comfort in cool weather, as well. Because a variance in temperatures often exists during winter months, the fans are designed to effectively combine elevated heat with cool air at the floor level. The destratification of the uneven temperatures at varying levels in a building provides a comfortable, uniform temperature while saving money on heating costs. Because the HVLS fans only consume approximately 400 W of power, smaller solar panels are able to easily power the fans. The MacroVoltaic system also includes the solar panels, standard remote control, an optional auxiliary power supply, and an optional battery backup. The fan is designed to operate in a variety of methods to best meet individualized consumer needs. The system can be used as a stand-alone solar fan, as a solar fan with auxiliary backup, as a solar fan with battery backup, or as a solar fan with both auxiliary and battery backup.
