Don't forget, the cross-section of any wind turbine is critical in determining power output. Small size = small output. Vertical axis turbines have been around for a long time, they have some advantages. After non-directionality, being able to put the heavy generator at the bottom is major. Minuses include bracing the top, many verticals are not self-starting and the portion close to the ground gets very little wind.
I've never lived anywhere (except as a child) where wind power made sense.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
