The seven turbines could generate up to 17.5MW of energy
Plans for a wind farm in Northamptonshire have been submitted to Daventry District Council.
Energy company E.ON wants to build seven turbines near Kelmarsh Hall and the site of the Battle of Naseby.
Opponents say wildlife would be affected and that the site is close to an accident-prone stretch of the A14.
But Daniel Badcock from E.ON said: "We've carried out all necessary studies and worked with local stakeholders."
"We firmly believe that this is not only a great place for a wind farm but also that our application reflects that and the work that we've carried out," he added.
E.ON said if granted planning consent, the seven turbine wind farm could produce up to 17.5MW of power, enough to meet the needs of 7,828 households and displace more than 15,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year.
