NREL GIS Data: California Wind High Resolution

Abstract: Annual average wind resource potential of California at a 50 meter height.

Purpose: Provide information on the wind resource development potential within California.

Supplemental_Information: This data set was produced by TrueWind Solutions using their Mesomap system and historical weather data, under funding from the California Energy Commission. It has been validated by NREL and wind energy meteorological consultants. This shapefile was generated from a raster dataset with a 200 m resolution, in a UTM zone 11, datum WGS 84 projection system. On-site measurement is strongly recommended before siting potential wind farm developments.

Other_Citation_Details: The wind power resource estimates were produced by TrueWind Solutions using their MesoMap system and historical weather data under contract to Wind Powering America/NREL. This map has been validated with available surface data by NREL and wind energy meteorological consultants.
