The aim of this paper is the wind power assessment for possible use in electric power generation in the State of Veracruz, Mexico. For this objective were used wind speed records every 10 minutes at 50m height during 2008 and 2009 in 16 anemometric stations within the State. It was found that there are regions with 5.45 m/s of average wind speed, value that fits to have a total produce of 14,432 kW. To evaluate the output power generation it was selected the wind turbine ACCIONA AW 70/1500 model with 1500 kW of capacity, it was found that installing a wind turbine in a zone assessed it could generate to the electric network supply 10,649 MWh/yr, which could save 9,993.1 of Tonne of Oil Equivalent (TOE) and a annual reduction of Greenhouse Gas equivalents 28,806.1 tons of CO2. In addition, it could be demonstrate the annual seasonally of the average wind speed, with the objective of watch de the variability of the wind through the year within the State.
