Mariah Power has created the Windspire, a small-scale turbine that is designed for homeowners looking for affordable renewable energy options.  It pumps out an estimated 1,800 kWh/year (11 mph winds) and is approved for urban and suburban settings.  The Spire is 30 feet tall and has a diameter of 24 inches, meaning it shouldn’t throw off any migratory patterns of birds!
