"Lucy, just a thought... You could get a fan like they use in 
battery-electric powered homes (wind, solar, etc.) and use it with car 
batteries to keep the air moving. Perhaps from a RV store or the internet if 
none close to you. You could charge the batteries with a car battery charger 
and bring them to the hoophouse. It's not as convenient as a fan on an 
extension cord, but it would work, I think." 
A good idea!!  but one step easier and probably cheaper buy a deep cycle marine/RV battery and an inverter and a regular large household fan.  Most fans can be run on a 100 watt inverter.  An inverter takes the voltage in the battery and changes it to 110.  We use these in our vehicles all the time and I run my register at the market on one AND a fan if it's really hot out..not spoiled or anything on that...  Check ebay even for the inverter.
