These might be worth looking into.
Saw this on some TV show this summer and wrote it down as a "look into someday". I know nothing about it yet, other then it sounded good, works in low wind, doesn't over speed and can be mounted horizontally and probably a whole lot less intrusive (visually) then the standard wind turbine with those huge blades..
For the past several years theres been a small building in my town with a couple helix turbines. Up until I saw the show I thought they were some weird weather station wind speed monitors.
I think their focus was for urban settings especially commercial buildings in big cities, but as with most things once bugs are worked out and the technology perfected I'm sure it will have viable residential uses.

I'm sure too there are several other companies working on these (helix) designs.
