Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
An interesting analysis of turbines for lower wind speed regions.

These are optimized for lower windspeeds with larger ratio of swept area to generator size. These installations have a larger capacity factor.

Southern states seems to have decided that having wind turbines in their backyard was easier than building the connecting lines from the North (and a lot of the manufacturing of components of turbines happens in the industrial South, of course)

Jerome, I one asked what you thought of turbines in built-up areas. Does this new development change anything?
