Wind energy can be produced anywhere in the world where the wind blows with a strong and consistent force. Windier locations produce more energy, which lowers the cost of producing electricity. Moderate to excellent wind resources are found in most regions of the United States and off the nation’s coasts in many areas. Wind resource maps available through the Wind Program can help individuals, communities, and developers determine whether the wind resource in a particular area is adequate for wind power.
