ok it turns out i cant put up 2 wind turbines because the second one would
be "conditional use permit"  which is unacceptable to me.  I cant do 2
whisper 175's so i was thinking going a little higher.   the 10,000 watt
turbines are too much for me and the proven 5000 watt is supposedly no good
cause it is a downwind turbine, at least thats what southwest power says -
they also say manufacturer is not in usa which is not good.  OK....so is
there anything higher output than the whisper 175 that is good?

There is nothing wrong with a non-usa made unit, unless you want to keep the
business in house. many of the big wind farm machines are made in Europe. as
for downwind machines, they work, and have their own set of advantages and
disadvantages. see the one being constructed here:
