NACEL Energy Corp. has delivered engineering drawings and other technical documentation, including wind turbine selection and a proposed date of commissioning, pursuant to a recent submission of a formal request for interconnection, to Golden Spread Electric Cooperative Inc. of Amarillo, Texas, for NACEL's Hedley Point wind power project, located in Donley County.

NACEL Energy presently has four active requests for the interconnection of new wind power generation projects to the electric grid in the Texas Panhandle. These include Blue Creek in Moore County, now before Southwestern Public Service Co. (a subsidiary of Xcel Energy); Channing Flats, also in Moore County, now before Southwest Power Pool and Swisher; and Hedley Pointe, both in Donley County, now before Golden Spread Electric Cooperative (as agent for Swisher Electric Cooperative). 

At final build-out of these four projects, a total of 80 MW or more of new wind power is expected.

In addition, engineering work is ongoing, and interconnection requests are also anticipated to be completed in the coming months for the company's recently announced Leila Lakes wind project in the Texas Panhandle and Snowflake wind project in northern Arizona.

NACEL Energy anticipates a period of several months, or longer, before a final interconnection agreement is executed at Hedley Pointe. According to the company, commissioning at Hedley Pointe is not expected until at least the fourth quarter of 2010.
