Two wind turbines are arriving on Blackpool's promenade on Tuesday to help power the resort's famous illuminations.
It is hoped Blackpool's windy coast will boost energy levels
They will sit on the front, close to the Sandcastle Water Park, and will be joined by a third in May.
Although the turbines cost £147,000, councillors hope they will cut £13,250 off the town's annual energy bill.
Julian Kearsley, Blackpool Council's executive director, said people would be able to comment on the designs.
The resort is testing two types of turbine to harness the seafront wind.
The first ones to arrive will be three-blade turbines mounted on 15m (49ft) poles. They have 9m (29ft) blades - making them 19.5m (64ft) high in total.
They will be joined in early May by a smaller 14m (46ft) "helical" turbine which has "S" shaped blades.
The council expects them to last for 25 years.
There are already two wind turbines at the Solaris Centre in the resort and this pilot will extend the project.
The illuminations make extra demands on Blackpool's energy
"Our initial experience of the two wind turbines at the Solaris Centre has been good," said Mr Kearsley.
"Geographically, Blackpool is in a tremendous position to harness the power of the wind and turn it to our advantage.
"This pilot will enable us to confirm wind speeds, turbine output and the number of turbines required."
The council said the illuminations, although a "key element" of the town, means it uses more power than other councils.
Powering street lighting, traffic signs, municipal buildings and the resort's light show costs about £1m a year, it has said.
