Field Trip: Sweetwater Wind Farm

Location: Sweetwater, Texas

On April 12, 2019, J.D. and LL.M. students will visit the Sweetwater Wind Farm in Sweetwater, Texas. The Sweetwater Wind Farm is one of the largest in the world. During the wind tour, the students will attend a presentation on wind turbine operation and go inside an operational wind turbine. They will also attend presentations by landowners and the Executive Director of Sweetwater Economic Development as well. The tour is being led by Rod Wetsel, a former adjunct professor at The University of Texas School of Law. The wind tour is a unique opportunity for students to complement what they are learning inside the classroom with onsite learning, especially in the field of international and comparative law.
