Denver-based NACEL Energy Corp. has filed an application for interconnection with Southwestern Public Service Co. (SPS), a subsidiary of XCEL Energy, for NACEL's 20 MW Channing Flats wind power project located in Moore County, Texas.
NACEL Energy's complete submission to SPS included requisite engineering drawings, wind turbine selection and proposed date of commissioning.
An NRG Systems meteorological tower was erected at the company's Channing Flats wind energy project site. Last quarter, the company commissioned an interim analysis of site wind data collected at Channing Flats, and results met expectations.
NACEL Energy anticipates a period of months, or longer, before a final interconnection agreement can be executed with SPS. In the interim, important additional development milestones are under way, including – without limitation – obtaining turbine debt financing and a power purchase agreement. Commissioning at Channing Flats is not expected until July 2010, according to NACEL.
