This article is resolved to demonstrate the variability of generating electricity from wind energy from the African settings. This paper brought to the fore the historical background of wind energy. There are some concerns when generating electricity from wind energy source. This paper disabused some of the concerns and projected the advantages and benefits of generating electricity from wind energy source. The paper also discussed the construction of wind power systems and the components that made up this plants. Harnessing this energy could be done from wind farms, this write up described the types of wind farms: onshore and offshore wind farms. The paper revealed the characteristics of wind energy that could facilitate the generation of electricity from wind source. To prove the suitability of generating electricity from wind energy, the paper tabulated some of the countries in the world that generated significant amount of electricity from this source. The paper also described in depth the perspective of Ghana in the generation of electricity from wind energy. The paper discussed data obtained from Energy Commission of Ghana and settled on eight locations or sites for analysis. The mathematical expressions and equations that encompassed generation of electricity from wind energy source were deliberated on extensively in this write up. The article also brought to the fore the technical and geographical wind potentials of Ghana and modelled mathematically the available power from the output of wind turbines. The carbon dioxide emission that could be reduced by Ghana from this research was also discussed.

Keywords : Electricity, Wind Energy, Onshore, Offshore, Wind Farms, Available Power, Wind Turbines, Carbon Dioxide.
