Are wind farms at higher elevations more efficient?

    Yes, the higher the turbine, the more energy it can capture because wind speeds increase with elevation increase — ground friction and ground-level objects interrupt the flow of the wind. Scientists estimate a 12 percent increase in wind speed with each doubling of elevation.
