THE DOCUMENTARY "WINDFALL" WAS MADE IN MEREDITH NY,
JUST OUTSIDE OF ONEONTA NY.
THIS IS THE TRAILER FOR WINDFALL.
IT RUNS TWO AND A HALF MINUTES AND IS A MUST WATCH!!
MEREDITH RESIDENTS WERE SUCCESSFUL IN STOPPING THE PROJECT, PARTS OF THIS TRAILER SHOWS INTERVIEWS FILMED IN NYS TOWNS THAT WERE
NOT ABLE TO STOP THEIR PROJECTS.
676' ALLOWANCE HAS BEEN WRITTEN INTO OUR WIND LAW BY THE GUILFORD TOWN BOARD
THE CURRENT TOWN BOARD PASSED A WIND LAW THAT ALLOWS
CALPINE TO BUILD 676' TURBINES ONLY 1500' TO A RESIDENCE
ONLY ONE AND A QUARTER TIMES TO A NON HOST PROPERTY LINE (812.5')
ONLY 1500' TO SENSITIVE SIGHTS, CHANGED FROM 2 MILES
NO PROPERTY VALUE GUARANTEE (Real Property Value Protection Agreement)
ONLY TWO TURBINES AT THIS SIZE, ON LAND, EXIST IN THE WORLD
ONE IN GERMANY AND ONE IN TEXAS
CALPINE WANTS TO CONSTRUCT 25 IN GUILFORD
HOW BIG ARE THE PROPOSED TURBINES ?
THIS IS NOT A STATE PROJECT - THIS IS A PRIVATE PROJECT
THIS PROJECT IS BEING OVERSEEN BY THE STATE (ARTICLE 10)
THE LOCAL TOWN BOARD HAS INCREDIBLE AUTHORITY BY WRITING THE WIND LAW
NYS IS A HOME RULE STATE:
This means that the local level (the Guilford Town Board) has more authority than the county level or state level
AS IT IS WRITTEN INTO THE NYS CONSTITUTION
THE LOCAL LEGISLATORS (TOWN BOARD) ARE OBLIGATED TO PROTECT OUR
HEALTH, SAFETY AND WELFARE
People who are against the high bridge project are not against
wind power or renewable energy.
What we are against is 650’-675' turbines being built too close to homes and people’s property lines.
CNG is an environmental advocacy group
Our top concern is for the health and wellbeing of the PEOPLE!
That’s All people within and around the proposed project, especially those who own and live on non-host properties.
