The wind characteristics in Barangay Bagasbas Daet, Camarines Norte, by way of 5-year wind data at a 10-m elevation was analyzed using the data received from the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA). The overall mean wind speed in the area is 3.36 m/s at 75 degrees North of East. By way of the Weibull model, an annual wind density of 52.7 W/m2 was recorded to fit the wind data distribution. With power curves of 3 kW(V), 5 kW(V), 10 kW(V), 10 kW(H), and 20 kW(H), a small-scale turbine was used to estimate the annual energy generation. The expected annual energy production for a 20 KW(H) wind turbine is about 17,095.23 kWh/year. However, the 5 kW(V) wind turbine showed the highest capacity factor of 13.97%.
