This research document is focused on the design an implementation of a low cost Automatic Weather Station (AWS) in order to measure the environmental variables which are related to the wind an photovoltaic energy generation. This kind of structure, a weather station, entails more elements than sensors variables which are going to be measure, in such a way that it would be difficult because of data collection system, the information storage system process, the location of the AWS, the visualization system and the time of synchronization. This Process includes the proper selection of the sensors and each element, the analysis of the conditioning system, the construction of the entire prototype and the startup of this according to the environmental conditions of the position that will have the AWS.
