Enabling some remote fitment of the fan in a less noise-sensitive part of the house would be interesting, and maybe also become easier to recharge the accumulator either when energy is cheaper or when there is a peak generation considering an off-the-grid house. Sure I would be willing to experiment with either solar or wind power generations, maybe even both, if I were already living in a house instead of an apartment.
