Smaller scale windmills/wind turbines (lots of them) on blimps make sense.
Also, I sincerely believe that blimps can offer a much better ROI over traditional antennae and cell phone towers.
Doing so could open up vast swaths of entire regions and help bring Internet access to areas, that were previously inaccessible. This can prove to be a much rapid way of implementing infrastructure. And not just for power alone. Internet, phone, city-wide wifi blanket. It’s only limited to your imagination.
Safety is key. As long as safety can be guaranteed. The model above, can go a long way towards ensuring safety.
