    In San Francisco you have zero wind turbines. But you said area, right? In San Francisco county you have no Wind Turbines!

    The industry doesn't have much optimism for vertical-axis turbines, including the helix design.

    The only person demonstrating ignorance is you. When is the last time you visited the Altamont?

    Or have you ever even seen the dozens of windmills sitting silent?

    That's not including the ones that have caught fire and collapsed.

    Last time I drove through Altamont Pass I counted more failed windmills than active ones. By "failed" I don't mean they weren't in use; I only counted as "failed" those with missing or obviously damaged blades. I won't do that again. To many failures to count - distracting on a somewhat difficult road.
