Deciding the key location to build a wind farm is an essential element in order to obtain optimum energy production with the least cost of resources possible. A strategic location is crucial as it will ensure that turbine foundations, access roads and construction areas be provided at a reasonable cost. The location selection will also enable the authorities to predict the environmental impact to the wind farm surroundings. In this research, the AHP and Fuzzy AHP method are utilized to evaluate the priority of criteria in selecting a location for wind farm. A case study is also carried out to evaluate the wind potential on two locations, thus, implementing the TOPSIS method to choose the best wind site. The paper is arranged in five important sections that include introduction, methodology, results and analysis, discussion and conclusion as well as recommendation.
