How do you determine wind regions for Solar Installations? Determining the wind region of your solar installation is critical to ensure compliance and safety. Wind regions are pre-defined for the whole of Australia by the Australian Standard 1170.2. The Wind Region is an independent factor of surrounding topography or buildings.
There are four wind regions outlined for Australia
- Most of Australia is designated Region A, which indicates a Regional Wind Velocity of 43 m/s with an average wind recurrence of 200 years.
- Some areas are designated Region B (52 m/s). Local authorities will advise if this applies in your area.
- Region C areas (64 m/s), are generally referred to as; Cyclonic and are usually limited to northern coastal areas. Most Region C zones end 100km inland.
- Region D (79 m/s) is Australia’s most extreme Cyclonic Region. Located between the town of Carnarvon and Pardoo Station in Western Australia.
