Georgia has an important wind energy potential, which is estimated to be able to annually generate 4 billion kilowatt-hours.
By the natural energetic potential, the territory of Georgia is divided into four zones:

1. A high speed zone - mountainous regions of Southern Georgia, Kakhaberi Vake and the central region of Kolkheti Valley. The working duration period is more than 5000 hours per year.
2. A partly high speed and low speed zone - the Mtkvari gorge from Mtskheta to Rustavi, Southern part of Javakheti, Black Sea line from Poti to Kakhaber Vake. The working duration is 4500-5000 hours per year.
3. A low speed mountain range effective exploitation zone - Gagra mountain range, Kolkheti Valley and Eastern Georgian lowlands.
4. And a low speed mountain range limited exploitation zone - Iori Zegani and Sioni water reservoir. 
 
The rest of the mountain ranges on the territory of Georgia can not be used for exploitation by wind power stations.
The researches conducted on the territory of Georgia showed some suitable areas for the construction of wind power stations. 

Wind power engineering now has the most competitive energetic technology.

 N  Location  Capacity (megawatts)  Annual energy generation (million kilowatts-hour)
 1  Poti  50  110
 2  Chorokhi  50  120
 3  Kutaisi  100  200
 4  Mta-Sabueti I  150  450
 5  Mta-Sabueti II  600  2000
 6  Gori-Kaspi  200  500
 7  Paravani  200  500
 8  Samgori  50  130
 9  Rustavi  50  150
   Summary  1450  4160

According to scientists, the share of the wind power stations in the world power engineering will be 10% by the year 2025.
In 2007 the MOU was signed between the Government of Georgia and the Georgian American company “Karidani” on the construction of 24 MW wind plant in the suburbs of Tbilisi Sea. The cost of the project is around 24 million dollars.
