Map of West Virginia's Average Annual Wind Speed
The Department of Energy's Wind Program and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) published a wind resource map for the state of West Virginia. The wind resource map shows the predicted mean annual wind speeds at 80-m height. Presented at a spatial resolution of about 2 km (interpolated to a finer scale for display). Areas with annual average wind speeds around 6.5 m/s and greater at 80-m height are generally considered to have suitable wind resource for wind development.
Note: Wind resource at a micro level can vary significantly; therefore, you should get a professional evaluation of your specific area of interest.
