The South African Wind Atlas project is a four year project covering areas of the Northern, Western and Eastern Cape. It consists of five working packages that together will culminate into a wind atlas and database. It consists of ten wind measurement stations installed over the project area. The wind measurement plays an essential role in verifying and fine tuning of the models. The ten wind measurement stations are in operation and the measured wind data can graphically be viewed on www.wasa.csir.co.za and can be downloaded monthly on http://wasadata.csir.co.za/wasa1/WASAData.
