NACEL Energy Corp. has delivered engineering drawings and other technical documentation pursuant to a recent submission of a formal request for interconnection to the Southwestern Power Pool (SPP). The request was made for the first phase of company's Leila Lake wind power project, located in Donley County, Texas.
NACEL Energy has selected the Acciona AW1500 wind turbine with a rated capacity of 1.5 MW for commissioning at Leila Lake.
NACEL Energy presently has five active requests for the interconnection of new wind energy generation facilities to the electric grid in the Texas Panhandle, including 19.5 MW at Leila Lake Phase I. At final build-out of these five Texas projects, at least 110 MW of new wind power is expected to be commissioned.
NACEL Energy anticipates a period of at least several months before a final interconnection agreement is executed at Leila Lake. In the interim, other development milestones are also underway, including obtaining turbine debt financing and a power purchase agreement. The company says that commissioning at Leila Lakes is not expected until the fourth quarter 2010.
