    the latest information I have gathered is from taking this course via Verge Permaculture. Dan is a Phd, who has been studying, writing about, designing, and living life for like 40 years, in multiple environments, In this short clip, he makes it sound magically perfect, but I assure you, in the full class he was quite careful to encourage one to evaluate the site before considering wind (and he is a certified wind something or another, I forget the exact certification, but does official evaluation of a site to see if wind is appropriate, and cost-effective). He has very specific reasons why, as yet, vertical turbines aren’t “ready for prime time”. I’m not making this stuff up, or pulling out of an orifice, just passing on what I’ve learned either personally, or from actual experts.
