The Future of Wind Turbines? No Blades | WIRED
Now think about combining wind and solar in the same area. If or when these two technologies join together, the power generation from a single farm would almost double. Taking into consideration that wind tends to be stronger at night, the marriage of these two technologies could almost solve the power gaps associated with both separately.

One wonders what the probability is that a system could  be developed that would combine collecting wind and solar in a single unit.

The possibilities are there, we only need to rethink how we have been  thinking.
