%X Wind speed is one of the characteristics of wind energy which its data is extracted from meteorological stations. In this study, the data obtained from the weather station in the city Eqlid during a ten-year period has been used. Weibull distribution was chosen as the best distribution function using fitting tests and estimation of some statistical parameters. The results showed that the average wind speed was about 2.96 meters per second and the least wind speed occurs in the warm months. Average rating for extracting the maximum wind speed (Vemp) at the studied stations was about 7.81 meters per second. The total power density and wind energy were 79 Watts per square meter and 657.6723 kilowatt hours per square meter in a year, respectively. The dominant wind direction with the highest contribution in the region belonged to the directions of east, south and west.
