This documentary gives a well explained account of the past and future issues concerning the grid. I must warn that it is pretty long (23 minutes). The fast pace of change in the wind energy market means that 2004, when it came out, is a looong time ago, but I think it is still worth it to watch it, as it is very informative of how we got to where we are and what is at stake.

Topics covered: the history of electricity, the 2003 blackout, large wind farms in the northeast, especially New York, and wind energy’s economic impact on farmers and rural communities.
