The wind energy in Castilla y León is one of the main energy sources and is more developed than in other communities of Spain, this is because of the good location of Castilla y León and the efforts made by the autonomic government and the regional companies. Castilla y León is a very suitable region for this type of energy because it is a rural community and located in a plateau in which there are sustained winds. It has obtained information about the current situation of the wind energy in this community and with this information, a research has been done to develop the wind energy in Castilla y León and in this way increase the performance of the energy and get more economic costs. The main advantage is that the wind energy is a renewable source which makes it interesting develop of this energy and the major disadvantage is its availability due to this energy depends on the presence of relatively strong winds, for this reason, alternatives have been researched to make it more productive. Taking advantage of that the wind power is a renewable energy source, a project have been done to study the viability of the replacement of the nuclear power in Spain using wind energy. The obtained results confirm the viability of this energy and the necessity to keep developing this energy because today in Castilla y León and Spain this is the main renewable energy and still it could be more developed y make Spain a country more respectful with the environment.
