WINDVEST™ is a highly innovative proprietary capital structure and process which enables NACEL Energy to successfully joint-venture with local wind energy developers, expedite timelines and improve project economics. The U.S. energy market is changing and the most dramatic increases in the renewable energy sector have come from wind.

The global wind market is estimated to be worth $36 billion annually in new generating equipment, according to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC). Wind farm economics improve as the price of oil increases. Currently there are 24 states that have adopted mandates and guidelines that require a certain percentage of energy be utilized from renewable energy resources. NACEL Energy is well-funded, having received capital funding commitments totaling $3.2 million to finance the development phase of its 36 month strategic growth plan consisting of 80 MW of new wind power turbine construction. The company's strong balance sheet boasts total assets more than 50 times total liabilities, no current debt and virtually no long term debt.
