NACEL Energy Corp. has entered into long-term wind development rights agreements covering 640 acres in Navajo County, Ariz., where the company intends to establish its 10 MW Snowflake facility.
NACEL Energy's Snowflake facility is located immediately adjacent to the first wind power facility built in Arizona – the multi-phase Dry Lake project developed by Portland, Ore.-based Iberdrola Renewables. Through an arrangement facilitated by the landowner at Snowflake, Iberdrola Renewables has agreed to release to NACEL Energy 15 months of wind data collected at its Dry Lake project.
The company adds that it is assessing an interconnection plan for Snowflake, which could encompass either Salt River Power (the option pursued by Iberdrola Renewables at Dry Lake) or Arizona Public Service.
