Sustainable exploitation of natural resources of the Planet without damaging it is considered as sustainable development. Fossil fuels will be depleted over the next few years. Hence, it is unavoidable that new energies replace fossil energies. In this paper, the wind energy potential of Pars Abad Moghan synoptic station is studied. The dominant wind direction at this station during the year is toward the east, which is due to the heat overload of the Caspian Sea in the hot half of the year and the heat overload of Siberia in the cold half of the year. The probability of wind speeds between 4 and 25 m/s at this station is 1277 hours a year. The wind energy density, the theoretical and practical power of wind turbines at this station are 15.54, 26.6, and 8.04 watts per meter squared per second, respectively. Considering the low energy potential and the number of hours of operation of wind turbines in this station, Pars Abad Moghan synoptic station is not a suitable station for exploitation of wind energy for injection into a nationwide network, but it is possible to use this energy for some agricultural applications.
