The firm behind a renewable energy plant at Immingham says there is strong public support for the project.
The bio-mass plan by Drax Power will create up to 850 construction jobs and 150 local jobs after it is built.
Drax, which runs the power station near Selby, has been allowing the public to discuss the plan at open exhibitions.
It says nearly 70% of people gave the plant the thumbs-up by saying they viewed the renewable energy proposals positively or very positively.
Bio-mass plants generate electricity by burning fuels including wood chips, energy crops and other material from renewable sources.
Drax says the proposed plant could provide enough electricity to power up to 530,000 homes.
It is also considering building two more bio-mass plants in Yorkshire.
Drax project developer Marvin Seaman said: "We are extremely pleased with the level of interest shown in the project by the community.
"The backing shown for the proposal is enormously encouraging and with the continued support of residents we will be formally submitting a project planning application to the Government in the coming months."
