Denver-based NACEL Energy Corp. has commenced the collection of site-specific wind measurement data at its Channing Flats project site in Moore County, Texas, with the installation of a 200-foot NRG Systems meteorological tower transmitting data back to NACEL Energy, via an Iridium satellite uplink.

NACEL Energy's analysis indicates that the construction of a series of 10 MW phases is optimal at Channing Flats and that 20 MW or more of generating capacity may be achievable at build-out.

While the Channing Flats wind data is collected and modeled, additional development milestones are to be undertaken by NACEL Energy, including interconnection engineering, turbine engineering and obtaining turbine debt financing. Accordingly, the company cautions that commissioning at Channing Flats is not expected until at least the end of the fiscal 2009-2010 year, or later depending on future events.
