WEAP's default projection is the World Coordinate System WGS 1984. However, you can change the projection for your area. I recommend doing this before you build any WEAP nodes in your model. You start by deleting all the pre-loaded shapefiles until you have one left (WEAP wants you to have at least one shapefile) and then uploading your shapefile with your preferred projection. You won't see it, but you will be able to delete the other shapefile.
As soon as you do that, WEAP assumes your new projection. You may need to reset the area boundaries around your new shapefile.
If you had already built WEAP nodes before changing the projection, you will have to reproject the shape file that displays those elements in the new the projection. It will be in the WEAP Areas folder for your model.
