The electricity he is making costs quite a lot more than the cost of the electricity on the grid.

I live in an apartment in NYC. My yearly electric costs (For an apartment) are nearly 2K a year. So it seems to me, he's well ahead of the game.

Because that turbine is much too small to be cost-effective in the US where we have exceptionally low electricity rates. In Europe where electricity is 2-4 times more expensive, it's a different story.

I don't know what Gaia charges but typical costs for a machine of this size are $3,000 - $7,000 a kilowatt. That's an 11 kilowatt machine.

I know little about Wind from hands on experience. I was talking about water power...

No, you weren't. See above where you used the words "he's well ahead of the game"? "He" refers to the owner of the wind turbine mentioned in the OP. It's also obvious that I was referring to that same machine since I was responding to the OP.
