The wind speed at Inshas, Egypt in 2003 is considered as a case study. A statistical analysis gave the annual average wind speed as 3.80 m/s, in the range of 3.0 to 5.0 m/s for 89% of the time. Comparison among Weibull, Rayleigh, and actual data distributions of wind speed and wind power indicates that the Weibull distribution is the better fit. The mean monthly wind speed had its maximum in December and its minimum in February. The maximum wind energy potential was 63.6 W/m2 in December and, the annual mean value was 34.4 W/m2.
