Twenty four wind turbines that are nearly as big as Blackpool Tower could be built on the moors between Hyndburn and Rossendale.
Details of the massive development have been announced after a meeting of developers with the local councils.
Project manager for EnergieKontor UK Ltd Judith Cornfield said the company thinks there is the potential to build turbines with a height of up to 130 metres, to the blade tip.
They are looking at a large area between Haslingden Road and Grane Road, near Oswaldtwistle and haslingden.
