This is on-shore wind resource map for rural power applications in Mexico. The map can be used to aid in appropriate siting of wind power installations. Please note that the wind speed classes are taken at 30 m (100 feet [ft]), instead of the usual 10 m (33 ft). Each wind power class should span two power densities. For example, Wind Power Class = 3 represents the Wind Power Density range between 150 watt (W) per square meter (m2) and 200 W/m2. The offset cells in the first column on of the table on this website attempt to illustrate this concept.
