Residents in a west Devon village fear they could lose their broadband service if an 80-metre (262 ft) wind turbine is built nearby.
Villagers in Northlew say the turbine could disrupt a wi-fi network providing internet coverage for 500 people.
The village runs a community broadband service accessed by more than 150 households in the area.
Energy 4 All said it would work with villagers to safeguard the system if the turbine was built.
Spokesman John Malone said: “We need to be absolutely sure there are no negative impacts, so we’re looking at that now.
“The advice we’re getting is there is a possibility [of interference] but it is unlikely. We need to undertake the appropriate assessments.”
The turbine, which is proposed for nearby Inwardleigh, would be a community project allowing local people to buy shares in the turbine from £250 and then make a return on that investment.
It is one of three being proposed in Devon, the others being near Barnstaple and near Totnes.
