The Skystream 3.7 model has a 3.7 meter diameter rotor, a very small residential - scale unit - made in USA by Southwest Wind Power in Flagstaff AZ. It is a perfect size for students to learn facts including pros and cons of wind energy.
Except in very rare (and unfortunate) cases of poor site selection for one or two large wind farms, bird kill is generally considered a non-issue. Plenty of information on this subject is available for those who care to find the facts.
