    A "small, efficient" modern windmill for each farm would go a long way in rural America.
    Wind is a go big or go home technology.  Available wind energy scales as the cube of average wind speed.  Wind is stronger and steadier hundreds of feet above the ground.  A 100m tower can be literally 100x as efficient at producing power as a backyard windmill.

    Small scale wind is only rational if you literally have to buy zero components.  Otherwise, put your money where it can be most effective.
