To determine the average wind speeds for your area, first perform a quick View of Nationwide Wind Speeds to determine if your geographic region has any wind energy potential.
If your area does have wind energy potential, you'll want to zoom in for a closer view of your state and obtain more specific data by selecting your state listing below:
Note: If your state is not listed, it is because there is insufficient wind data available at this time.

To help you estimate what size wind turbine will work best for you, you first must have an idea of how much power your home uses during a typical year.
It is necessary for you to get your electrical utility bills so that you can get your last years values of total KWH (kilowatt hours) used, or possibly review your most recent billing statement which may provide your monthly average which you can simply multiply by 12 to get the yearly use rate.
> I use KWH per year.
It will also be helpful to know what you are paying your current utility company for each kwh. To do this as accurately as possible and to factor in their varying time of day rates, volume rates, taxes and fees, it's best to simply take a current bill and divide the total amount due by the amount of kwh's used. This will provide you with the true amount you pay per kwh.
> I pay an average of $0. per KWH.
