The national wind-plant performance is the highest during spring time, but can vary across regions.

Wind generation seasonal patterns vary across the U.S., says EIA

Wind -plant generation performance varies throughout the year as a result of highly seasonal wind patterns. Nationally, wind-plant performance tends to be highest during the spring and lowest during the mid- to late summer, while performance during the winter (November through February) is around the annual median. However, this pattern can vary considerably across regions,
