Roof Ridge Vents versus electric ventilators

Having new roof installed, and have proposal to install ridge vents versus electrical ventilators. Are ridge vents effective, and are there problems with leaking? Have also been told that a OSB sheathing (tech shield) is better than a modified hot shingle over a small section of flat roof. Any comments appreciated. Thanks.

Ridge vents are one type of static vents. They allow the most air to escape and are installed near the roof peak. Ridge vents are the most effective types of vents.
