Denver, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Nacel Energy Corporation confirmed it has entered into two long term wind development rights agreements covering an aggregate of 636 acres in Donley County, Texas. The project, called Hedley Pointe, is the company’s fourth wind energy project located in the Texas Panhandle. At project build-out, Nacel Energy anticipates 10 megawatts (MW), or more, of power generating capacity from Hedley Pointe.
Nacel’s Hedley Pointe wind project is located to provide potential interconnection optionality with two electric system operators, SPP and ERCOT. SPP provides power to Kansas and portions of Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. ERCOT provides power to 21 million customers covering 75% of Texas.
“Hedley Pointe is our fourth wind power project. We anticipate generating a total of 80 MW of clean, renewable power upon build-out of our four Texas Panhandle projects – enough energy to meet the daily requirements of an estimated 24,000 average American homes,” said Brian Lavery, Nacel’s CEO.
This follows the announcement last week that Nacel entered into two long term wind development rights agreements covering an aggregate of 1573 acres of farm land located in Swisher County, Texas. Once that project is completed, Nacel Energy anticipates that it will have an installed capacity of 20 megawatts (MW), or more.
