Description:
Abstract:
Annual average wind resource potential for the state of Rhode Island at a 50 meter height.
Purpose:
Provide information on the wind resource development potential within the state of Rhode Island.
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.
