Wind Energy Expert Leads Law Students on Tour of Sweetwater Wind Farm

On November 12, 2022, wind energy expert Roderick E. Wetsel led law students on a tour of the Sweetwater Wind Farm, one of the largest wind farms in the world. As part of the tour, the group visited a local landowner, who showed them the turbines on his ranch. The group also stopped to tour a new solar ranch. They also got to hear from the Economic Director of Sweetwater on the economic impacts of wind development.
