    Synopsis:
    Wind power… It’s green… It’s good… It reduces our dependency on foreign oil. But does it? Or, is it merely a highly profitable financial scam for the many wind energy developers looking to erect industrial wind turbines in a town near you? WINDFALL, looks at both sides of wind energy development when the residents of a rural upstate New York town consider going green. Attracted at first to the financial incentives that would seemingly boost their dying economy, the townspeople grow increasingly alarmed as they discover the impacts that the 400-foot high windmills slated for Meredith would bring to their community.

    Windfall, by Laura Israel, USA, 2010, 83 mins
