NREL GIS Data: Connecticut Wind High Resolution

Abstract: Annual average wind resource potential for the state of Connecticut at a 50 meter height.

Purpose: Provide information on the wind resource development potential within the state of Connecticut.

Supplemental_Information: This data set has been validated by NREL and wind energy meteorological consultants. However, the data is not suitable for micro-siting potential development projects. This shapefile was generated from a raster dataset with a 200 m resolution, in a UTM zone 12, datum WGS 84 projection system.

Other_Citation_Details: The wind power resource estimates were produced by AWS TrueWind 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.
