United States Pacific Northwest Regional High Resolution Wind Resource

Annual average wind resource potential of the northwestern United States at a 50 meter height.

This data set has been validated by NREL and wind energy meteorological consultants. Note: This data is not suitable for micro-siting potential development projects. This shapefile was generated from a raster dataset with a 400 m resolution, in a UTM zone 11, datum WGS 84 projection system. The resource information for the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla reservation is not being made available as part of this data set at their request.

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.
