Many remote places still don't have mains electricity wired up so having a wind turbine in that situation would be very cost effective. Much cheaper than laying mains cables or putting up long stretches of pylons.
A mix of energy generation would be a better approach I think, wind + solar panels and batteries for storage.
I think wind farms are probably a result of gesture politics and some incredible lobbying.
