Registration Information
This course is restricted to upper division students only.

Wind Energy will cover federal and state governmental incentives for wind- generated electricity; regulations dealing with the location of wind farms; acquisition and content of wind leases; issues, such as claims of nuisance and environmental problems, that arise from the location of wind farms; "property" issues, such as severance of wind rights from all other ownership rights; transmission of wind-generated electricity, and marketing.

Because this is a new course that has never been taught before, either here or elsewhere, course content and the syllabus are subject to modification over the course of the semester.  There is no book or other published materials, so the assignments will be primarily linked to cases on Lexis and Westlaw, websites, and material on Blackboard.  Some material, such as wind leases, will be distributed in hardcopy.
