Wind received a gust of attention this week from Fortune Magazine.
Fortune profiled NACEL Energy, the first publicly traded company to work exclusively in wind power. The company could very well mark the beginning of mainstream alternative energy.
Kurt Divich with SmallCapCentral.com says that, "this exposure in a publication as widely read and influential as Fortune clearly is a boon to awareness of the opportunities that exist for wind investors and Nacel."
The NACEL Energy Corporation (OTCBB:NCEN) received some attention for developments in four states, focusing mainly Texas. The company develops wind farms of six to 18 turbines, working primarily in ten to 30 megawatt projects in high wind areas, such as the Panhandle.
CEO of NACEL, Paul Turner, said that the momentum in wind energy was "huge" and investment is expected to be spurred onwards by new renewable energy requirements. The largest project NACEL is currently working on is the Blue Creek Energy Facility in Moore County, Texas, covering over 2000 acres.
