Denver-based NACEL Energy Corp. has executed three long-term wind development rights agreements covering 1,068 acres in Donley County, Texas. The newly acquired land is contiguous with the company's Lelia Lakes wind power project announced in July, and brings the total acreage under development at Leila Lakes to 2,093 acres.

Donley County was identified by NACEL Energy's operations team in mid-2008 as a region of development interest. The county exhibits Class 4 winds prevalent throughout the Texas Panhandle and, based upon the company's analysis, offers favorable interconnection opportunities, initially at lower voltages.

In brief, NACEL Energy identifies interconnection opportunities in power markets of interest and then leases nearby acreage where six to 18 utility-class wind turbines can be constructed, without incurring the often significant transmission and related electric infrastructure upgrade costs and/or delays that can adversely impact other companies' wind power projects.

NACEL Energy anticipates generating at least 40 MW of wind energy from its Leila Lakes and Hedley Pointe projects in Donley County.

In addition, increases in generating capacity may also be feasible, if the higher voltage infrastructure now being planned for the area is constructed, and as regional power market demand dictates.
