Trailer for the “State of Green” Renewable Energy Documentary
October 30th, 2012 by Joshua S Hill
State of Green is a documentary film that is looking for support from you, the viewing public, to help continue it’s goal of examining renewable energy and its effects on the people of Vermont and the US.
The goals of this film are to explore the human story behind renewable development and to foster an intelligent, informed discussion. Our demand for energy is confronting us in our own back yard. Change is inevitable. With change comes sacrifice. Will the green energy movement strengthen our economy or compromise Vermont’s unspoiled beauty?
In an effort to transition away from fossil fuels, the Vermont state energy plan calls for 90% of the state’s power needs to be met from renewable sources by the year 2050. GREEN MOUNTAIN POWER, Vermont’s largest utility, is leading the way in renewable energy development and working to offer their customers affordable, sustainable power.
Vermont purchases a significant amount of renewable energy from HYDRO QUEBEC. Many Cree people were displaced by the development of Hydro Quebec’s St. James Bay project. How much of their culture and landscape was lost in an effort to produce power? Is their story a window into Vermont’s future?
You can find out everything you’d ever want to know about the film, those making the film, and what they intend to do with the film once they’ve completed work on their website, State of Green Movie.
And they’re hoping for your financial help too, as they attempt to gather as much footage and dedicate more of their time to this project.
