Wind farms in California and other regions of the world exist only in relatively small geographic regions.[i] Most of these resource areas have reached their physical or political[ii] limits in their ability to install additional propeller-type, horizontal axis wind turbines (HAWTs).[iii] Nonetheless, many have topographies that create excellent near-ground wind speeds.
To profit from the energetic wind below their HAWTs, wind farm owners need cost-effective
