This one runs on solar power and even if it did run on electricity this fan is much cheaper to run.

Would love to have to use my central air right now...

Any money saved from lower heating bills in the winter months when it is mild are lost on the increased cost of using more windshield washer fluid. [fist

The only flaw with that is the energy used to make that ice is actually going to generate more heat than the ice removes.

Guess it could still be useful for directly cooling yourself though.
