E.ON could soon be providing cheap business electricity using a new wind farm.
It's about to begin the second stage consultation process for its proposed wind farm near Newton Aycliffe in the north-east.
The site will include 24 turbines capable of generating enough energy to power about 35,000 homes.
E.ON wants local people to have their say on the matter and help shape the plans.
Project manager at the energy supplier Paul Hunt said concerns about the way the wind farm will look and how much noise it'll make have been taken into consideration.
He added: "We're investing heavily in the region and believe this is a good site for a wind farm."
Earlier this month, chairman of the Energy and Climate Change Select Committee Tim Yeo said the government mustn't delay in passing legislation to support the generation of electricity using wind farms, the Guardian reported.
