The Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EOEEA) has made this modeled representation of wind velocities in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts available to further the exploration of alternative energy sources.  The original data were developed by Truewind Solutions, LLC under contract to AWS Scientific, Inc. as part of a project jointly funded by the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund, the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative (MTC), and Northeast Utilities System.  The datalayers has been processed to make it more comatible with other geographic datalayers maintained by MassGIS.
