Read about innovative oscillating, non-spinning wind turbines here.
If the turbines are successful, then another benefit would be that they wouldn’t kill avian life, unless they flew into it, which is very unlikely.
If they are able to provide electricity for individual homes, they could potentially have a lower levelised cost of electricity than a rooftop photovoltaic system. Consider that conventional spinning wind turbines have the lowest levelised cost of electricity of any commercially available energy generator.
This might be a good reason for me to continue learning Spanish!
