    It is advantageous to build wind farms vertically instead of spreading them out over land.

    "The aerostats are large fabric envelopes filled with helium, and can rise up to an altitude of 15,000 feet (4,600 m) while tethered by a single cable. The largest lifts a 1000 kg payload to an operating altitude providing low-level, downward-looking radar coverage. The aerostats are stable in winds below 65 knots (120 km/h). "
