At the gateway of Europe, you swoosh through history. You might see remnants of windmills that once dominated the landscape of Holland, also home of the Zeeland small wind turbine test site (Figure 1-13). Also, tip your cap to Denmark up north, which has long been home to pioneers of wind turbine development. Then there is Germany, Spain, and numerous other countries in the European Union that have seen small wind turbines planted like seeds in a field after the government agreed to pay feed-in tariffs for clean electricity wherever the site permits (see Chapter 6 for more on financing).
