    I think a vertical windmill with magnetic generator is the most effective way. It will take less wind and produce with less downtime. Any members use these?

    i was looking at this some time ago. i came across a company from chicago who built something like a dna molecule. you know? like a double helix. the idea was just as you suggest - make it work in light wind. i wanted to try and mount one on our front porch, but never got around to it. i'll root around to see if i can't find more for you about that company.
    good luck.
