The use of renewable energies, mainly wind and photovoltaic, are sources of generation that have spread worldwide by micro-grids. In places where the implementation of electric grids is inaccessible or economically not feasible, the installation of wind micro-turbines and photovoltaic systems for electricity generation and water pumping systems has been implemented; however, renewable energies have not yet been used in some rural areas due to the lack of studies and initiatives of their own. In the present study, in situ measurements have been used to evaluate the wind potential in rural town and the application for micro-turbine. Through the Weibull Distribution, an analysis of the wind energy potential available in the area has been carried out incorporating commercial wind micro-turbines and energy cost analysis. The favorable wind levels and the nominal speed values of commercial turbines have allowed obtaining the capacity factor values and energy costs, which allowed determining the feasibility of the installation of wind micro-turbines to provide electric energy to the habitants of this town.
