On January 27, 2010, APS issued a formal solicitation for new wind power generated from utility scale facilities of between 15 and 100 megawatts, located entirely within the borders of Arizona. APS requested all bids be submitted by April 14, 2010. Successful bidders are expected to contract with APS under long term power purchase contracts and/or turn-key build and transfer arrangements.
NACEL Energy Chief Executive Officer Paul Turner, Ph.D. stated: "Since we announced Snowflake last July (see Company’s news release and 8-K filed July 28, 2009) we have made substantial progress. We first obtained 3 years of meteorological tower data to quantify the wind resource at our location in Navajo County. We then submitted our plan of electrical interconnection to APS (see Company’s news release and 8-K filed December 31, 2009) and completed additional important engineering work related to wind turbine placement and power collection. In preparing our RFP submission, we were assisted by a tier-one wind turbine manufacturer, enabling us to submit a comprehensive and competitive bid."
