Concerns have been raised over plans to put up two wind turbines in Shropshire.
South Staffordshire Water is considering putting up two 400ft (122m) high turbines at Chelmarsh Reservoir, near Bridgnorth.
It plans to put up a test rig to see if there is enough wind to make the scheme worthwhile.
Bridgnorth councillor Elizabeth Yeomans said she would need to be convinced that it was worth sacrificing a beautiful landscape for the turbines.
South Staffordshire Water has not yet submitted a planning application.
Keith Marshall, from the firm, said the company welcomed consultation with the people of Chelmarsh and added that nothing had yet been decided.
He said it was important to place the turbines close to its customers, adding: “To get the benefit from renewable energy, the closer you can site your usage to your generation, the more effective and efficient it is.”
