WORK to build two 130m high wind turbines at an Eye industrial estate is set to begin next spring, which will provide green power for a transport firm.
Planning permission has been granted for the masts at the Roy Humphrey Group, which is set to supply electricity to the equivalent of 2,800 homes.
The scheme at the airfield industrial estate, off the A140, could save more than 7,000 tonnes of carbon every year, said officials from renewable energy company Wind Direct and the Roy Humphrey Group. Any excess green energy not used by the company will be exported to the local distribution network.
Construction is likely to commence in spring 2011.

Carl Humphrey, from the Roy Humphrey Group, said: 'Even though the car industry is regarded as potentially a high carbon emitter, we all have a contribution to make. This not only provides us with the green credentials needed in today's business environment, but makes our business more sustainable as a whole.'
The group employs 150 people at Eye.
