Generation of electrical energy from wind-mills, has assumed significant importance in the context of the energy crisis over the world community. As the fossil fuels are limited and regular consumption of the same causes the air pollution and global warming, hence it is time to adopt un-traditional methods like solar-energy, wind-energy, hydro-energy and tidal-energy in addition to traditional methods.

Subtropical region where most of the world's deserts are spreaded and heat low formed as the day progress and a shallow level strong wind ( Aandhi ) starts to blow from May to August. Four frontiers district of Western Rajasthan (i.e., Jaisalmer, Bikaner, Jodhpur and Barmer has been selected, where huge area of land is in the form of hillock and sand-dunes) can be utilized by installation of wind-mills with proper management, selection of location, type & design of wind-mills.

Wind recorded by anemometer on every synoptic hour has been classified into four categories i.e., light wind (L= 0 to 9 kmph ), moderate wind (M=10 to 14 kmph), strong wind (S=15 to 19 kmph) and very strong wind (VS= 20 kmph & above). Wind speed data were collected for all the four stations for ten years period (1 January 1999 to 31 December 2008 ). Category wise frequency distributions for all the stations have prepared. To get-rid of green house gases effect of air pollution, un-traditional energy development methods have to be implemented for safer environment and development of agriculture and industrialisation.
