Denver, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Nacel Energy Corporation has entered into four long term wind development rights agreements covering 1025 acres in Donley County, Texas. The rights include access to the area where the company plans to develop Leila Lakes, its fifth wind energy project in the state. At project build-out, Nacel Energy anticipates 20 megawatts (MW), or more, of installed capacity at Leila Lakes.
Leila Lakes is located within electrical proximity to Nacel Energy’s 10-MW Hedley Pointe wind energy project, announced in February 2009, affording additional flexibility with respect to interconnection and turbine siting, the company said.
Collection of site specific wind data will begin soon with the installation of a 60-meter NRG Systems meteorological tower transmitting data back to Nacel Energy, via an Iridium satellite uplink. Nacel Energy said that project commissioning at Leila Lakes is not expected until fiscal 2010-11, or later depending upon future events.
