NACEL Energy Announces $2.8 Million Financing for Crownbutte Wind Power

June 9, 2011 - DENVER, CO

NACEL Energy Corporation (OTCQB: NCEN) (FRANKFURT: 4FC) (PINKSHEETS: NCEN) ("NACEL" or the "Company") today confirmed its principal financier, JMJ Financial of San Diego, California ("JMJ"), has agreed to terms and executed a series of Notes, which, if fully exercised, will provide a total of $2.8 million in financing for Crownbutte Wind Power Inc. (OTCQB: CBWP) (PINKSHEETS: CBWP) (Crownbutte). In January 2011, NACEL acquired two blocks of the common stock of Crownbutte and became its largest shareholder.

NACEL Energy Chief Executive Officer Mark Schaftlein stated:

"Crownbutte has three wind power projects, which during the last three to five years, have progressed through the development stage and are now ready to be constructed this year, in 2011. Through May 31, 2011, NACEL has invested a total of $111,687 in Crownbutte, providing essential operating capital to Crownbutte for the ongoing development of these projects and other corporate requirements. In addition, a total of $268,000 of Crownbutte debt has been restructured or settled. Securing this long term financing arrangement with JMJ is an important milestone for Crownbutte. It provides a foundation from which Crownbutte can execute upon its business plan of building, owning and operating a portfolio of utility scale wind parks across North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana and thereby should also serve to enhance NACEL's, and all other shareholders', investment in Crownbutte."

Last week, Crownbutte exercised and delivered a $330,000 Promissory Note in exchange for JMJ's delivery of a $300,000 Secured and Convertible Promissory Note, being the first of the aforementioned series of Notes together totalling $2.8 million in financing. There are no assurances such future financing transactions will occur. In addition, while efforts are diligently underway to secure the turbine financing needed for Crownbutte's wind parks to be built, there are no assurances these efforts will be successful. There are many risks and uncertainties related to the wind power business, which are more fully described in NACEL's and Crownbutte's SEC filings available at
