Windfall

A group of residents of Meredith, NY discover the impacts that a 400-foot high windmill could bring to their community, but become divided over how they see wind power affecting the future of the community.

This documentary offers insight into the repercussions of having a wind turbine on or near your property. The machines produce a constant hum, a vibration in the ground and the strobe effect may drive you and your neighbors to a nervous breakdown. Each blade of the propeller weighs about 7,000 pounds. While trying to do their part to produce efficient, renewable energy the local populations are finding wind turbines are not necessarily a viable alternative. I can't imagine how these might affect the sea life if they are placed along the shore or out in deep water. ~Mike
