So far wind has been uneconomical in Florida due to the relatively low surface wind speeds. This could make it more feasible as a night time backup to solar electric. Essentially by surrounding the fan with an airfoil lip, it pulls more wind across the blades, significantly increasing power output.

Vertical-Axis wind turbines are more efficient too.
more research has to be done on wind turbine
designs...
 
Yeah, I've wanted to make a vertical-axis turbine as a side project for a while. The nice thing about them is that they don't need any orientation mechanism: wherever the wind comes from, it will hit the blades.
