Residential roof mounted micro wind turbines have low popularity for residential renewable energy generation. They are often overlooked for the application of residential roof mounted solar panels, even when wind turbines may be a more feasible option for the resident’s specific location. This study investigates the feasibility of roof mounted wind turbines for Pacifica, Half Moon Bay, and Belmont in the San Francisco Peninsula region of California. Recommendations for residents, local governments, and residential roof mounted wind turbine manufactures are proposed. This study investigates how residential roof mounted wind turbines can be implemented for feasible application of renewable energy generation in the peninsula region of the Bay Area.
