New Brunswick Wind Atlas

The province of New Brunswick offers a digital High Resolution Wind Resource that they call the New Brunswick Wind Atlas on their Service New Brunswick (SNB) website. The provinces wind data set is tiled into smaller higher resolution thematic maps of New Brunswick matching their topographic mapping network grid and depicting “Mean Wind Speeds (m/s) at 80 m AGL (above ground level)” Each map describes the average wind resource available at elevations indicated AGL. The maps were generated by the Université de Moncton, based on the Canadian Wind Energy Atlas (

Like most of the province of New Brunswick’s geographic data, this data set helps their citizens create decisive decisions on whether or not their property has the potential to produce electricity from wind energy.

Other provinces such as Ontario, Nova Scotia and PEI have similar data sets available to the public as well.
