    Much depends on how close your neighbors are, if they are in earshot of the device they may raise the issue. Other problems can be insurance as windmills can throw blades which can cause destruction for neighbors, or being up on a tower the tower can fall.

    On the off grid groups I have been apart of a combo of solar with wind was what many supported as when there was no sun wind can fill in the gaps for power.

    Windmills can be made to be quiet with proper bearings or design.

    I bought a wind gen and I gave it away because in my area there are too many trees that block the wind thus it was not a good option for me. I had considered using balloons with wind generation, but for me solar was the best option being in Florida where there is an abundance of sun.
