Ten Times the Turbine

Doug Selsam is now offering his multi-rotor wind turbines for the home. They run about $2000 and can potentially power a small home's needs. Here is what his website says:
"The California SuperTwinTM has 100 square feet of swept area. This turbine is a serious power-producer and could potentially power most or all of a whole cottage or small home that conserves well, in a high wind area. Please do not confuse our power rating of 2000 watts with the "fantasy ratings" of many "toy turbines" that you may see elsewhere. We are in a completely different league with regard to making real, serious power. Swept area is the first factor that determines output - having dual rotors doubles the swept area. SuperTwinTM generates more power than similar-sized turbines even claim, let alone deliver. Their best-case wishful thinking is our reality, and then some."
