The film

« What do we really know about wind power? We are told it's "green energy" and reduces our dependency on foreign oil. That's exactly what the people of Meredith in upstate New York thought when a wind developer offered to supplement this farm town's failing economy with a farm of their own - that of 40 industrial wind turbines. Attracted at first to the financial incentives, some of the townspeople grow increasingly alarmed as they find out about side effects they had never anticipated. WINDFALL exposes the dark side of wind energy development and the potential for highly profitable financial scams. With wind development in the U.S. growing annually at 39%, WINDFALL is an eye-opener for anyone concerned about the future of renewable energy. »
