Denver-based NACEL Energy Corp. has submitted an application for operation of customer-owned generation to Swisher Electric Cooperative Inc. (SECI) concerning the interconnection of the company's 20 MW Swisher wind power project to the electric grid.

SECI serves an area of 1,871 square miles in six counties in the Texas Panhandle and is part of Touchstone Energy's group of electric cooperatives. NACEL Energy's complete submission to SECI included requisite engineering drawings, wind turbine selection and proposed date of commissioning.

NACEL Energy anticipates a period of several months, or longer, before a final interconnection agreement can be executed with SECI. In the interim, additional development milestones are under way, including obtaining wind turbine debt financing and a power purchase agreement. Accordingly, the company says that commissioning at Swisher is not expected until at least July 2010.
