Wind Power vs. Solar

I have a solar PV installation with 16 x 300 W panels. My average generation (taking the average for the full 24 hours of a day) over about two years has been around 430 W per hour. There is obviously no generation when it is dark and not much in the depths of winter, even in daylight. Is this sort of average power beyond the reach of a modest wind turbine? I would have thought that I am more likely to have a use for the electricity when the wind is blowing than when the sun is shining.
