Denver-based NACEL Energy Corp. has entered into four long-term wind development rights agreements covering 1,025 acres in Donley County, Texas. Leila Lakes is the company's fifth Texas wind energy project. At project build-out, NACEL Energy anticipates at least 20 MW of power generation from Leila Lakes.

Leila Lakes is located within electrical proximity to NACEL Energy's 10 MW Hedley Pointe wind energy project. All five of NACEL Energy's Texas wind projects are located in the Panhandle.

Collection of site-specific wind data will begin soon, with the installation of a 200-foot NRG Systems meteorological tower, which will transmit data back to NACEL Energy via an Iridium satellite uplink.

While wind data is collected, additional development milestones - including interconnection engineering, turbine engineering and obtaining turbine debt financing - must be completed by the company.

According to NACEL Energy, project commissioning at Leila Lakes is not expected until fiscal 2010-2011, or later, depending upon future events.
