2014 Mexico Wind Performance Map

Understanding variability is key to Mexican wind investment

The 2014 Mexico Wind Performance Map, released by Vaisala, delivers positive news for much of southern Mexico where above-normal wind speeds boosted performance at many of the country’s operating wind projects. Conversely, wind speeds below the long-term average in Mexico’s interior negatively affected overall production at wind farms in that region. These departures from mean
