I can't say for sure for a 2011, but I can tell you that my 2015 3010DS is pre-wired for all vent openings.
I installed a remote-controlled fantastic fan in one of my openings this spring. The remote feature would be no more of a battery drain than any other type. The remote uses it's own batteries. I suppose that technically it would take a little more battery to automatically open the cover but it can't be too much. If you lookup the specs from fantastic fan, they'll tell you what it will draw on each speed.
