Abstract: This paper proposes the wind resources potential as a wind power plant in Kulon Progo, Indonesia. The location of this research is Congot Beach, Jangkaran Village, Temon District, Kulon Progo Regency, Yogyakarta Special Region Province, Indonesia. By considering that weather in the area is very conducive to the speed and strength of the wind, and the area is still full and extensive so that it is free to make a building for electric power plants using a windmill. The optimal configuration resulting from the Homer software analysis shows that this wind power plant is able to supply electricity needs without buying electricity from the grid. So that the wind turbine in Congot Beach has the potential to be built as a power plant, it’s just that the construction costs are quite high and require a slightly longer return on investment, which is around 18.5 years.
