Folks in Canada can use this:

http://www.windatlas.ca

Be warned that the database is for 30 meters (100 feet) and up.  A taller tower than most of us have...   ;)
No one believes the theory except the one who developed it.  Everyone believes the experiment except the one who ran it.

System spec: 135w BP multicrystalline panels, regulated by Xantrex C40, DIY 8ft diameter wind turbine, regulated by Tri-Star TS60, 800AH x 24V AGM Battery, Xantrex SW4024
