The LiFePo4 battery is a solid deal but note that you cannot put them in serial for higher voltage. The flexible 100W panel is also solid and a good choice for boats/RVs at only 4lbs. There is a $53 20A MPPT charge controller and a fancier bluetooth one for $72.
Hot price on a solar attic fan for $99.
There are others but these seem the best deals. This was an earlier deal ending 11/20 for the rigid panels and has some discussion: https://slickdeals.net/f/15420964-hqst-100-watt-12-volt-monocrystalline-solar-panel-76-99-with-fs?v=1&src=Site
So you will need at least 6 in the most ideal case.
However, given that each time you transform electricity (AC to DC or vice versa) you are dealing with 80% efficiency (if you're lucky, sometimes as low as 50%) then you will need at least 750W in solar input, or that's 8 panels at almost full power (e.g. during the sunniest hours of the day).
If you want to also be able to run it during earlier/later hours or during cloudy days, etc (when you don't get 100% sun power) you might want to add extra few panels. So, make those 8 into 10 panels, add a bit of battery storage (as you could save the excess electricity) and you'll be good to go.
It will certainly be a green solution. Just not cheap.
