  •  Small scale wind is a terrible idea. (3+ / 0-)

    Winds are faster and more steady hundreds of feet off the ground, and the available wind energy grows as the cube of the average wind speed.

    A hundred-meter tower can be literally 100x as efficient at generating energy as a 10-ft windmill.  The economics are not even close.

    Save your pennies and find a way to dump them into bonds for towers.
