Plans are unveiled for a wind and solar farm that could power 20,000 homes in north Cornwall.

Families living around Week St Mary could be offered money off their bills.

But campaigners are worried it will be a blot on the landscape.

Juliet Davenport is from Good Energy...

"Cornwall has got fantastic wind and solar resources. The other part of it is that we are seeing energy bills in the UK rising higher than we've ever seen them before and really this is about investing in a secure energy future for Cornwall.

"This is the first part of the journey for this site. We're going out to 900 householders to go and talk to them, find out their concerns, try and understand them and try and adjust where we can and really putting the community at the heart of this development."
