NextEra Energy visit TTU's National Wind Institute

It's time for Career Fairs on campus, and to coincide with that, NextEra Energy visited the National Wind Institute to participate in TTU's Engineering Job Fair and to interview a select group of our outstanding undergraduate students in the final stages of completing their Bachelor's degree in Wind Energy.

As part of NextEra's busy multi-day visit, company representatives toured NWI facilities, visited with faculty and staff, and managed to fit in a fun afternoon of land sailing on the unused runways at the Institute's 67-acre field site out at Reese Technology Center.
