    Very interesting. This report, that for the average homeowner, dollar for dollar, solar produces 5 times the power of wind, backs up my personal findings through the experience of myself and others.
    As I've said so often, very few were the days when my small wind turbine produced ANY usable power at all, while with solar, extremely few were the days when it didn't produce at least some usable power for several hours.
