Is the wind more powerful at the top of mountains than it is at the base?

    There isn’t a general answer for this question.  Wind turbines are placed in a location after a lot of consideration is given to natural wind currents.  Wherever the location, the wind is most strongest there, whether it be at the top or base of a mountain.  One could see it in strong in both cases however, since wind is strong at the top of mountains where there are no obstruction and also strong in a valley, where the geography can act as a wind tunnel.  It all depends on the wind maps and natural currents.
