This paper is to investigate the potentials and possibilities of electrical generation via wind turbine. Special attention is directed to the interpretation of wind generation characteristics and parameters found in Lebanon and linking the electrical energy to the Lebanese slectric grid. Although much of the wind energy research is very well established and boomed globally (USA, Europe, India and China), in Lebanon is never used. At a time when climate scientists are increasingly concerned about carbon dioxide emissions from coal and diesel plants, and the nuclear industry is drying, the significance of a major new source os electricity is clear. there are many motives and feasibility criteria for qind power generation in Lebanon. They include the need for increasing the Lebanese electrical capacity, reducing air pollution, alternative energy sources and prices and availability of oil. The work will include literature survey on current wind energy development and application. Economic, technological and practical implementation aspects are considered if time allows. Using wind turbine as additional energy source can prove useful to EDL by providing a nonconventional means for meeting rural demand. By reducing the loads at the end of heavily used transmission lines, EDL can avoid constructing costly new transmission capacity. EDL can reduce loads by boosting conservation or by installing modular sources of generation, such as small wind turbines, close to the point of demand.
