NACEL Energy has submitted a bid to American Electric Power Service Corp. (AEPSC) for the supply of 20 MW of renewable energy from Leila Lake, NACEL's Donley County, Texas-based wind farm.

In June 2009, AEPSC issued a request for the provision of 1,100 MW of renewable energy to its seven utility subsidiaries, including Southwestern Electric, which serves east Texas (the location of NACEL Energy's Leila Lake project), Arkansas and Louisiana. AEPSC requested bids be received by January 15, 2010 for projects in-service before December 31, 2011.

All power supplied by successful bidders is expected to be contracted with AEPSC under a 20-year power purchase agreements.

AEPSC will announce its decision March 1.

"Since we announced Leila Lake, we have made significant progress," said Paul Turner, chief executive officer, in a statement. "We first installed a 200-foot NRG Systems meteorological tower to quantify the Class 4 wind resource prevalent in the Texas Panhandle. We then submitted our plan of electrical interconnection and completed additional important engineering work related to wind turbine placement and power collection," Turner continued. "In preparing the AEPSC bid, we obtained the input of a tier-one manufacturer, whose turbines, based upon our review, are ideally suited to the wind characteristics at Leila Lake."
