Green-thinking farmers have unveiled plans for a massive wind farm in Mid Wales. But the scheme has concerned people living nearby, who are worried about the sheer size of it.
Awel Newydd, a joint venture between North Wales builders RDC Developments and a group of 13 farmers, called Tirgwynt, wants to build 22 wind turbines, up to 116m high, on 12 hectares of land at Mynydd yr Hendre, near Carno.
But the project could face opposition when the application is formally registered and public consultation begins.
