    Way cool, in the early 1980's I built about 600 small wind turbines mostly for sailboats, so windmills have a soft spot in my heart.
    PS, you probably would not like to live anywhere that a wind turbine is economically feasible.............. too windy.

    Model is micro not small. Tried once to build nominal five horsepower to heat water. Lots of problems. Makes one admire dead old men who did it a century ago with far less resources.
