You can make it spin up easily with little wind but that doesn't mean you'll make much power because of it. It's a figure of physics. There are some places where wind power isn't a great idea. Solar, with the absence of shade works much more effectively in those places. I'd be better off installing solar in Anchorage, Alaska versus installing a 100 foot high wind turbine in my county.
