The article reports on the warning by the buildings research charity, BRE Trust, that poorly-sited domestic wind turbines may never repay either the financial or carbon cost of their manufacture and installation. In "Micro-Wind Turbines in Urban Environments: an Assessment," BRE Trust found that turbine performance was affected by small local changes in wind. Turbines in areas such as windy parts of rural Scotland made a positive contribution after a few months or years, but those in large urban areas did not.
