A model was created for assessing the suitability of wind farm sites based on economic, social and environmental factors and applied to the state of New Hampshire. A map of wind speeds was created using WindMap. Accessibility issues were evaluated with the Geographical Information System (GIS)-based program Idrisi. These two factors were combined to identify two regions of high energy potential. Interviews with various parties identify the strengths of this analysis and help determine recommendations for future refinements of the model.
