Jaak: "Virginia has less mountains to capture the wind."

Mountains in VA are even taller than in WV.

Spruce Knob - highest point in WV - 4863 ft high

Mt Rogers - 5729 FT - highest point in VA.

Perhaps you've never been to the Blue Ridge, the Appalachians, or southwest VA?

But....a lot of the peaks are in National Forests, the Blue Ridge Parkway, etc. Same thing in WV......

Of course, southwest VA is 500 miles from 'anywhere'...... put in some wind machines and you'd need to build 300 miles of power lines to connect them to 'someplace'.

Same probably true in a lot of places in WV.
