A group of campaigners is backing proposals for a wind farm to be built in part of Derbyshire.
West Coast Energy want to build five wind turbines up to 125m (410 ft) high on Matlock Moor.
One supporter of the Matlock Area Climate Action Forum, which is trying to raise awareness of climate change, described them as "a necessary evil".
Some residents have objected to the planned turbines, which they say will be unsightly and noisy.
Laura Stevens, from the Matlock Area Climate Action Forum, said: "We feel passionate about climate change.
"We need to encourage Derbyshire to embrace renewable energy. It's an objective view if you find turbines unsightly but the fact is they will be five miles from the edge of the Peak District."
Daryl Cowley, who lives in Matlock Bath, said: "If people don't like them unfortunately they are a necessary evil, they're far better than churning out more carbon emissions."
A planning application has been submitted to North East Derbyshire District Council and the Derbyshire Dales District Council.
Planners have not yet set a date to make a decision on the plans.
