West Virginia State Potential for Wind Power

West Virginia Average Wind Speed MapMap 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.
