We measured local wind velocity and direction on a hill west of Gamagori City for about 4.5 years, finding that the average annual wind velocity is 3.3m/s and wind with velocity exceeding 4m/s blows over 2500 hours a year. We concluded that useful local wind energy exists based on the electricity generation standard. Three-dimensional incompressible potential flow analysis clarified local winds.
