The fulfillment of renewable energy supported by environmentally friendly technology is important for the Indonesian people especially in the border areas of Indonesia and Timor Leste today. This is a preliminary study that aims to map the possibility of wind energy in the border areas of Indonesia and Timor Leste, especially in North Central Timor District, East Nusa Tenggara Province, Indonesia. The method of research is the qualitative method with participatory observation approach. The results of the study found that the potential of wind energy in Mount Ainiut that can generate electricity of 7 x 3.5 = 24.5 Megawatts can be consumed 20,000 homes and small industries scattered around the West Timor Region. Local people are also open to accept the construction of microgrid electric technology facilities based on wind energy that is environmentally friendly. The findings of potential wind and acceptance of local communities can be important information for the Indonesian government to adopt relevant policies to support development efforts to provide electricity for communities in Indonesia's border regions of Indonesia and Timor Leste where satisfactory electricity needs are not yet met. Collaboration of the private and government sectors, especially the ministries in charge of the mineral resources of the Republic of Indonesia is very important. This has a positive impact on the economic growth of societies in the border areas of Indonesia and Timor Leste.
