Wind Resource Maps
VERA provided wind resource maps for each of Vermont's 14 counties to the Vermont Department of Public Service (VDPS) in May 2004. The maps illustrate estimated average annual long-term wind speeds at two heights above ground cover, and are based on large-scale (200-meter resolution) wind maps produced by AWS Truewind LLC.
