A thirty million pound windfarm could be built in north Cornwall.
A plan has been put in for the eleven turbines near Week St Mary and Jacobstow.
Developers say it will mean a community fund of more than £63,000 a year and cheaper bills for locals.
But some living nearby are worried about the impact of the 120 metre turbines.
Juliet Davenport OBE, CEO and founder of Good Energy said: "We believe The Big Field Wind Farm can provide a lasting positive legacy for the environment and the local community, and we are proud to put our name to it. Having consulted locally for over a year, we believe this project meets all planning requirements and supports both local and national renewables targets."
