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, NY 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.
