NACEL Energy Corp. has filed an application for interconnection with Southwestern Public Service Co. (SPS) for the company's 30 MW Blue Creek wind power project, located in Moore County, Texas.

NACEL Energy anticipates that months will pass before a final interconnection agreement is executed with SPS. In the interim, the company says additional development milestones are under way, including obtaining turbine debt financing and a power purchase agreement. NACEL Energy adds that commissioning at Blue Creek is not expected until at least July 2010.

"The filing of the application for interconnection, coupled with delivery of engineering drawings and other requisite documentation to SPS, is such a milestone," comments Brian Lavery, NACEL Energy's CEO.
