Peel Energy is holding further public consultations in Trafford and Salford about its plans to develop a 20MW renewable energy plant on land on the south side of the Manchester Ship Canal.
Peel has submitted a planning application to Trafford Council for the £70m Barton Renewable Energy Plant proposal.
Peel said the proposal, which is located immediately west of Barton High Level Bridge in Trafford, could generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 37,000 homes each year.
A two-day public consultation about the plans took place in July this year, and was attended by nearly 200 people, Peel said.
Jon England, Peel Energy project director, said: "We are extremely pleased with the level of public interest shown in the Barton Renewable Energy Plant. The backing shown for the proposal is extremely encouraging."
England added that a number of ideas that were expressed by visitors have been incorporated into the planning application.
Members of the Peel Energy team will be available at the public consultations so that anyone from the community can discuss the plans on an individual basis.
Over 2,300 households and businesses in Trafford and Salford have been notified about the consultation process.
Alongside the Peel Energy team, members of the community will also be able to talk to representatives from the Environment Agency and Planning Aid, with both organisations attending in an independent capacity.
If the Barton Renewable Energy Plant gains planning consent, Peel said work could begin on the site in early 2012 and the plant could be generating electricity by mid-2014.
The public consultation is being held at the DW Powerleague Trafford Soccer Dome at Trafford Quays Leisure Village on Thursday 9 December, between 4pm-9pm, and Friday 10 December, 10am-3pm.
