The challenge of supplying electricity, yet not jeopardizing the environment, or rather, producing electricity while ensuring sustainability is required if man is to save the environment from its current state of decline and environmental decadence. The work seeks to access and develop a wind energy system for a rural community. The methodology adapted in this study, is basically modeling; with its objective being the estimation of the highest possible Power Available to be harnessed by the wind resource of the study area. The mathematical models where developed using the works of other authors. Codes were developed in Matlab to generate random numbers, and simulations were subsequently performed in minitab.
