CNet reports big increases in the (very small) market for small wind systems. This seems likely to be another case of hope and enthusiasm that is not justified by the reality. The ever pragmatic Dutch have done a study of a dozen different small wind systems (report in Dutch, article in English). The result is that the Dutch will not subsidize or give special rates to small wind systems. They do have special deals for the large wind systems. But the economics are so poor in terms of cost per KWh or per ton of CO2 saved that they will not encourage small wind use.
Small wind will continue to have uses in special situations where they are the best economic choice. But the romantic push for small wind all over suburbs does not make sense.
