NACEL Energy Submits Interconnection Request to Golden Spread Electric for Hedley Pointe, Texas Wind Power Project

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - September 16, 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 Golden Spread Electric Cooperative, Inc. of Amarillo, Texas, for the Company's Hedley Point wind power project, located in Donley County.

NACEL Energy presently has four active requests for the interconnection of new wind power generation projects to the electric grid in the Texas Panhandle. These include Blue Creek in Moore County, now before Southwestern Public Service Company (a subsidiary of XCEL Energy), Channing Flats also in Moore County, now before Southwest Power Pool and Swisher and Hedley Pointe, both in Donley County, now before Golden Spread Electric Cooperative (as agent for Swisher Electric Cooperative). At final build-out of these four projects, a total of 80 MW, or more, of new wind power is expected.

In addition, engineering work is ongoing and interconnection requests are also anticipated to be completed in the coming months for the Company's recently announced Leila Lakes wind project in the Panhandle (see Company's Form 8-K filed on July 2, 2009) and Snowflake wind project in northern Arizona (see Company's Form 8-K filed on July 28, 2009).

NACEL Energy anticipates a period of several months, or longer, before a final interconnection agreement is executed at Hedley Pointe. 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 Hedley Pointe is not expected until the fourth quarter 2010, or later depending on future events.

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 Golden Spread Electric, as confirmed today, we are able to advise shareholders and other interested parties that the pace of development at Hedley Pointe is proceeding satisfactorily and as contemplated by the Company."
