Green energy firm Wind Direct plans to install two turbines with a total output of 5MW on the Roy Humphrey Group's airfield industrial estate site.
The turbines would provide clean energy for the company to use, with any surplus power being transferred to the National Grid.
The company held two meetings on Wednesday in the Eye Community Centre to give the public a chance to ask any questions they had about the project and see the finished appearance of the masts.

The company has already been successful in gaining planning application for an anemometer mast to measure the wind speed on the site, and has said that it intends to apply for planning permission for the masts if the data indicates that enough energy could be produced.
If that planning process is passed then the company claims that the turbines will be generating energy by 2011.
