Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
PV is more expensive than wind... yet iirc, aren't small wind generators (say for cabins, boats, etc) still more expensive than comparable PV panels...?  maybe I am remembering wrong -- must check some real catalogue prices to confirm this, but my imperfect memory from a wee bit of shopping around was that flexible marine-grade solar panels were "getting affordable" but wind generators of decent quality were still "very expensive" and I was discouraged from buying into the technology (aside from that there was the challenge of balancing the blades, constructing a tower, etc.)  I will try to do some actual wH comparisons and see what the customer is really paying for.

The difference between theory and practise in practise ...
