What exactly does the solar panels on the prius run?

    The solar panel is flush with the roof, and resides just behind the moonroof. The solar panel is only sold as a package with the moonroof and electric ventilation. The purpose of the panel is to provide electricity to run a ventilating fan, so on hot days the interior of the car is kept cooler, making it more comfortable on entry. The solar panel is 80W. It powers the ventilation fan that will run automatically when cabin temps rise. The air will, presumably, vent through the battery vent. This package also includes remote start air conditioning that can be run on battery alone.
