p.s. In response to Dressage Husband relating to the 400 years of power in the sun. I am not particular of this and never imply to place words in anyone’s mouth but I would take that 400 year figure to be primarily based on our predicted power consumption combined with current solar cell efficiency and obtainable land location that could be covered with solar cells.

Wind turbine technologies in its infancy expected a big diametrical and tall vertical footprints respectively in terms of propeller-like blades span and tower height (about 100 feet above ground). Thanks to technological breakthroughs, wind turbines will need not be eyesores and can match practically anywhere: rooftops, backyards, new constructions, and so forth.
