Sweetwater Wind Farm Tour 2024

Location: Sweetwater Wind Farm

On April 13, 2024, wind energy expert, Roderick E. Wetsel, led one of our LL.M. students on a tour of the Sweetwater Wind Farm in Texas, one of the largest wind farms in the world. They also made a stop at Texas State Technical College in Sweetwater and toured around the campus and the on site museum. Additionally, there was a site visit to an area in the city declared a public nuisance, where there is an abundance of stacked obsolete wind blades and other equipment.


“The tour of the wind farm and facilities was enlightening. Professor Wetsel’s guidance provided invaluable insights into the practical aspects of renewable energy systems, further fueling my passion for the field. As an aspiring energy lawyer, this experience has deepened my understanding and will undoubtedly shape my future career path.”
