An energy supplier that wants to build wind turbines in Hemswell Cliff has been criticised for canvassing "selected" individuals for a consultation.
The Lincolnshire Echo reports how RWE npower Renewables has been offering people £30 to attend meetings to discuss community schemes.
It is understood the fact finding exercise has been organised in order to gain opinions on what the firm's community benefit fund could be used for if its proposal to build ten 415ft turbines is approved.
However, chairman of Hemswell Parish Council Barry Dutton said: "They have selected people to take part by offering them £30 to attend a meeting. So we'll be suspicious of the findings."
Opponents claim the outcome of the meetings will not represent an accurate reading of local opinion.
RWE npower is one of Europe's leading electricity and gas companies and serves around 6.5 million customers, producing around ten per cent of all electricity used in Great Britain.
