Along term hourly wind speed data is the most appropriate form for calculating wind speeds duration and the available power. The data forms available were not so accurate, and it was necessary to bring them as close as possible to the recommended data forms. The data which was modified was identified Gaza Strip as one of the regions that have low energy potentials approximately about 54.9 kwh/m 2 if compared by Ramallah which has high energy potentials approximated to 712.2 kwh/m 2 . INTRODUCTION : Renewable energy, mainly solar and wind energy , can play an important rule in solving energy problems in Gaza Strip and West Bank. And the energy of the wind is an important natural source of mechanical power, It was important for the windmill's site to have a high average wind speed. These windmills were located in towns and villages where the power is needed. The power which could be produced is small, and the intermittent operation of the wind energy conversion system (WECS) so windmills are unable to compete with cheaper, more reliable and abundant sources discovered later. The world started to think seriously about renewable energy especially that of wind. Comparing with the steadily rising fuel costs, wind energy is becoming an attractive source for the future power supply systems....
