    Have you ever wondered ...
    Where is the best place in the USA for Wind Power?
    Well, look at this map ...
    http://www.windpoweringamerica.gov/wind_maps.asp
    It shows that the entire middle 1/3rd of the USA is the BEST !!!
    Most of the Green & Yellow colored locations are not so good.
    While the Tan color and other colors higher on the chart are the good locations.
    note: 80 Meters is roughly a 240' Tower = smooth powerful wind.

    Now check out this almost Real-Time Wind Map ...

    High Pressure areas have little or no wind power.
    While, Low Pressure areas and Cold Fronts have all the power!
