This was happening right under their noses and they didn't even know about it

"I think we were blinded by the money. I never thought once what my neighbor across the road would think.

There were salesmen from several wind developers. They were sneaking around all of Delaware County for two years.


I drove down among them for the very first time, turned off the engine, rolled down the windows and I really listened and I was horrified.


It was the idea that the noise would be forever. It would be that way for the next 25-28 years. It would be that way for the rest of my life.


I sent out a letter with a map and people would show up on our kitchen porch clutching the letter and map and they were astounded. This was happening right under their noses and they didn’t even know about it".

From the movie "Windfall". It takes place in beautiful Delaware County, NY but it could just as easily be Maine. The story is the same wherever you go.

It is now available on DVD and with the summer season upon us, showing your summer neighbors the film is a great way to pull them into the fight to save Maine from this scourge.

Don't let the Enronesque carpetbagging wind companies and a tiny minority of greedy landowners in your town make you out to be the bad guy. If you don't speak up and defend your backyard, who will?

The wind companies sneak around and everything is under a veil of secrecy fastened down with contracts that keep people gagged. They do not want anything in the open. When they finally announce the project their strategy is "inevitability" telling all resistance is futile.

Not so, resistance is what stops these sneak thieves dead in their tracks. There are far more resisters than they want you to believe. Silence is their game, secrecy is their growth medium. Don't have any part of it. Speak up.

From another movie:

Please consider buying a copy of Windfall today and please encourage others to do the same.

Synopsis (From )

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 residents of Meredith, 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, richly photographed, feature-length film, documents how this proposal divides the people of Meredith, 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. Israel also turns her camera on Tug Hill, New York, another small upstate town, where wind power is a done deal. Tug Hill’s 195 wind turbines create non-stop low frequency “whomping” sounds and strobe-like effects, resulting in health effects on the people living among them. With wind development in the United States growing annually at 39 percent, WINDFALL, is an eye-opener that should be required viewing for anyone concerned about the environment and the future of renewable energy.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT


(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.”

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
