    for the reasons that Keith Pickering said, but, more importantly in my mind is the voltage mismatch. It takes a BFT (Big [REDACTED] Transformer(R) to get up to the voltage of a transmission line. You wouldn't be able to just plug the wind turbine directly into the line.

    You can on buildings, street lights, and maybe distribution lines, but not t-lines.
