Great film revealing the realities of wind turbines. With the push for green energy sources we have seen wind farms pop up all over the nation. More and more, the companies installing these wind turbines are leasing land in rural areas and on farms where residents live in close proximity to these structures.
This film primarily focuses on the small town of Meredith in upstate New York and how this issue has divided its citizens. Video footage of the flickering shadows cast through windows into homes and recordings of the low thumping hum give you an idea of the reality of the daily impact of these turbines in residential areas. Residents share information on the noise and vibrations that are a constant annoyance and the health issues they have experienced that started when the turbines were turned on, including headaches, nausea, insomnia, and fatigue. Issues such as setbacks, ice throws, and equipment failures are discussed, as well as the realities of energy ROI.
