They could work at a oasis though.Wind power of a scale small enough to overland would be totally impractical and would not add significnt range unless you were in a nice gale most of the time. The ones you see on sailboats don't do much more than keep the batteries from slowly draining.
The reason wind power is effective is due to the extreme scale of modern turbines. They continue to get larger and larger. Wind travels very slow at surface levels and it's impractical to get them 50-100 feet off the ground on an overland journey.
Which do you think would be less susceptible to vandalism at a MW scale;
A solar installation or a MW wind turbine?
Or maybe it’s a question of vandalism risk vs maintenance schedule?
Which would be more effective and economical?
