Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Larger wind turbines operate farther away from the ground to take advantage of higher wind speeds

That is (a) a function of turbine height, not rotor diameter, which can (and is) increased independently, (b) it is a strong factor only on land - on water, in fact, the same type of turbines stand on typically lower towers (the lower limit is not even turbulence-related: it is a height for safe passage of smaller yachts).
