The relative humidity effect on the wind power was extracted as a renewable energy for electricity production in Nassiriyah city - south of Iraq investigated for three years (2011-2013) by theoretical calculations. The study showed that the effect of relative humidity on the annual average of extracted wind power at the minimum altitude which is feasible for electricity production in this city (32 meter for α = 0.4 and 44 meter for α = 0.3) is limited, but it increase with the altitude to be noticeable at high altitude. The percentage loss on the annual average of power for moist air (due to relative humidity effect) uneffective and vary between (0.847% and 1.106%) at altitudes (15 m and 71 m) respectively.
