NACEL Energy Corporation (NACEL) has entered into two long term wind development rights agreements covering an aggregate of 1573 acres of farm land situated in Swisher county, Texas. After completion of project, NACEL expects Swisher wind farm will have 20 megawatt (MW) or more, of power generating capacity. NACEL said that project commissioning at Swisher wind farm is not anticipated until at least the end of the company's fiscal 2009-10 year, or later depending upon future events.
Swisher wind farm is NACEL’s third Texas wind energy project located in the Panhandle.
Collection of site specific wind data has started at Swisher with the installation of a 60 meter (200 ft.) NRG Systems meteorological tower broadcasting data back to NACEL Energy, via an Iridium satellite uplink. While wind data is gathered, additional development milestones, which includes, without limitation, interconnection engineering, turbine engineering and obtaining turbine debt financing, must be completed by the Company.
NACEL chief executive officer, Brian Lavery, said Swisher is our third wind power project in the Texas Panhandle. We anticipate generating a total of 70 MW of clean, renewable power upon build-out of our three projects – enough energy to meet the daily requirements of an estimated 20,000 average American homes.
