I understand it is more windy on the west side of Washoe Valley but I have no evidence of that myself. They do restrict vans, busses and large trucks on the north south arteries of 395 and 580 at times but I would estimate that this occurs less than 10 times a year.
I was considering a windmill for electrical generation but I just don't think the wind justifies it. If the winds are high they are high for only 18 hours or so and then subside for weeks. Like anything else to do with weather it is cyclical but tho even I was warned about it before I moved here I consider it a non factor and rarely will even prohibit you working in your yard.
I you would like more information on our area please contact me http://www.BuyNevadaProperty.com or call 775-721-4893
