If you live in the city is the one that comes to my mind. A rule of thumb for how high to build a HAWT is 30' above the tallest obstruction in a 300' radius. A VAWT can deal with the more turbulant air closer to the ground. Check out www.windstuffnow.com Ed Lenz has built an incredible VAWT that pumps out a pretty decent amount of power.
