NACEL Energy Submits Interconnection Plan to Southwestern Power Pool for Leila Lake Phase 1

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - December 9, 2009) - NACEL Energy Corporation (OTCBB: NCEN) (FRANKFURT: 4FC) ("NACEL Energy"), a wind power company in business to generate clean, renewable energy, today confirmed it has delivered engineering drawings and other technical documentation, including wind turbine selection and a proposed date of commissioning (operations), pursuant to a recent submission of a formal request for interconnection, to Southwestern Power Pool, for Phase 1 of the 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. ACCIONA is ranked among the leading wind turbine manufacturers in the world, with more than 7,500 MW of installed generating capacity globally.

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 1. At final build-out of these five Texas projects, a total of 110 MW, or more, of new wind power will be commissioned.

NACEL Energy's Blue Creek 30 MW project in Moore County is now before Southwestern Public Service Company (a subsidiary of XCEL Energy), the Company's 20 MW Channing Flats, also in Moore County, is before Southwest Power Pool and the 20 MW Swisher and 10 MW Hedley Pointe, both in Donley County, are now before Golden Spread Electric Cooperative (as agent for Swisher Electric Cooperative).

In addition to the Company's five Texas Panhandle projects, engineering work is ongoing and an interconnection request is anticipated to be completed in the coming weeks for the NACEL Energy's recently announced Snowflake wind project located in Navajo County in Arizona (see Company's Form 8-K filed on July 28, 2009).

NACEL Energy Chief Executive Officer, Paul Turner, Ph.D., stated:

"With the delivery of engineering drawings and other requisite technical documentation needed for our request for interconnection to Southwestern Power Pool, as confirmed today, we are able to advise shareholders and other interested parties that the pace of development at Leila Lake is proceeding satisfactorily and as contemplated by the Company."

NACEL Energy anticipates a period of several months, or longer, before a final interconnection agreement is executed at Leila Lake. In the interim, other important development milestones are also underway including, without limitation, obtaining turbine debt financing and a power purchase agreement. Accordingly, the Company cautions that commissioning (operations) at Leila Lakes is not expected until the fourth quarter 2010, or later depending on future events.
