Ridge vents and wind turbines

I'm getting ready to install a new roog on my house which currently has both ridge vents and 3 wind turbiens on the roof. The roofer suggested that I not reinstall the wind turbines because they are working against the ridge vents. He only wants to extend the ridge vent system and not reinstall the 3 turbines. Is this the best way to go or should I do both the ridge vents and the 3 new turbines?

Thanks... Jim...

He is correct is that they are working incorrectly.

Just make sure you have enough and proper soffits at the eaves and you should be right on track.
