In this opening episode, we meet passionate windfarm developer Rachel Ruffle and learn of her controversial plans for the Den Brook Windfarm. She works for global windfarm developer, Renewable Energy Systems (RES), who wants to put nine 120-metre high turbines in the heart of some of Devon’s loveliest landscape.
Adversaries and advocates quickly draw battle lines as a town is increasingly divided on this hot button issue. Before the West Devon Borough Council can vote on the controversial plan, the town erupts. Acts of vandalism, angry scenes, and tears of frustration and disappointment begin to tear apart this once peaceful setting.
