Wind development could be at a crossroads in Vermont as regulators take up the latest large-scale project for the mountaintops. This week, VPR News examines the finances and science behind wind.

What divides communities where projects are proposed? Are they capable of producing as much electricity and reducing greenhouse gases as much as supporters contend? How are they financed? And where do the profits from them flow?
