New guidelines have been agreed to deal with future wind farm developments in Lincolnshire.
Councillors said the new strategy aims to protect and conserve landscapes for future generations.
The county council said there had been considerable interest over the past 10 years from companies wanting to construct wind farms.
It said a policy needed to be put in place to "protect our open skies and landscape".
Councillor Colin Davie, chairman of the environmental scrutiny committee, said: "In Lincolnshire, the relatively flat landscape and big, open skies mean that the turbines are visually more dominant, individually and collectively.
"A consistent approach is therefore required to ensure that the cumulative effect of wind turbine developments and their impact on neighbouring authority areas are weighed against commonly agreed criteria."
