Question about Patton Electric U2-20 Box Fan
WHERE does the light green wire connect to?
If it is coming from the power cord, it is certainly a safety ground wire and is attached to the round pin of the AC cord.
It can be attached anywhere to the metal frame of the fan.
Its purpose is to drain off any leakage current from the motor or other part carrying line voltage to avoid having dangerous voltage occurring on parts you can touch.
If your house is equipped with Ground Fault Interrupters (GFI), this ground is a little less important since the GFI monitors the current in the high and low sides of the AC line and if there is any difference between incoming and outgoing currents, it will trip to protect against shock.

Blue (Light to Hot) Blue to Black (optional)
Black (Fan to Hot) Black to Black
Green (Ground to Ground) Green to Green
If you do not have a green lead you might see a green screw to attach the ground wire from the house power. The fan has the optional light fixture future connect the blue wire to the black hot wire. If you have the optional light fixture you may want to connect it to a separate switch power.
