Currently a bit too expensive for the common or garden roof top mounted chocolate teapot!

Not sure whether they mean up the output by 1% or 5%.  Talking 'efficiency' seems more like the former, but it must be good for the larger turbines as an extra 100k is small fry on the total budget.

That's really rather interesting, I like that. You can see how that would be very useful for large-scale installations.
