Recently small wind systems have increased in popularity. Interestingly, hybrid solar/wind systems often provide the lowest total cost per KWH. See Detronics wind solar energy comparison. It should be noted that small wind implementations are highly dependent on local wind conditions. To determine site suitability it is best to measure wind with an anemometer. I note the simple rule of placing turbines 10 meters higher than anything within a 30 meters.
