Energy is the basic necessity for the economic development of any country. Many indispensable functions for present-day living grind to halt when the supply of energy stops, or when the generating power stations are operating below installed capacity. The impetus to undertake this task was got because of the elusive nature of energy from existing electricity companies which has kept Owerre-Ezukala in darkness for nearly seven years. Also, the rated or perceived wind velocity in this area and the effects it had produced was an added drive. This research discussed the parametric analysis and prospects of wind turbine station in Owerre-Ezukala, Anambra State. The wind speed data collected from some sites in this area averaged 5.6 m/s; indicating that the community has good prospects for the installation of wind energy conversion systems. The paper recommends that the implementation of this design, will not only solve the energy need of Owerre-Ezukala, but will as well benefit nearby communities.
