Small Wind Turbine Growth Projected to Keep Booming:

Payback time for people in good locations is reportedly 5-10 years at the moment. Of course, some people still don’t have the capital to put into a small wind turbine, or the foresight to, despite the short payback period. Like in solar, therefore, leasing and 3rd-party ownership are making small wind turbines more popular options for individuals and small businesses. Slower to innovate and develop in these ways, reportedly due to the higher efficiency and lower levelized cost of small wind, and facing more difficult siting issues, small wind doesn’t match the popularity of residential solar, but it’s got a lot of potential.
