The Craftsbury Public Library is partnering with the Ridge Protectors to bring a screening of the movie Windfall to Craftsbury on Saturday, January 14, at 7PM.  Wind power… it’s sustainable … it burns no fossil fuels…it produces no air pollution. What’s more, it cuts down dependency on foreign oil. That’s what the people of Meredith, in upstate New York first thought when a wind developer looked  to supplement the rural farm town’s failing economy with a farm of their own — that of 40 industrial wind turbines. WINDFALL, Laura Israel’s, feature-length film, documents how this proposal divides Meredith’s residents, as they fight over the future of their community. 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. Beautifully photographed, WINDFALL looks at both sides of wind energy development.  This 83 minute film will be shown at the Craftsbury Public Library.  For more information contact the library at 586-9683.

    Excellent movie! It was presented in Waitsfield last year. No matter what your opinion on Industrial Scale Wind Turbine Complexes, you will find this movie, with people of “both persuasions”, to be very informative. As well, the filming is very good.
