Lightsource Renewable Energy is looking to build a solar panel farm on fields in the Langtons, the Harborough Mail has reported.
The green power site would be on land at Meadow Farm, to the south west of Thorpe Langton, the south east of East Langton and about three miles north of Market Harborough town centre.
There has been no planning application for the site yet, but information leaflets have been circulated to village homes in the Langtons by solar power company Lightsource Renewable Energy.
Villagers have been invited to attend a meeting about the proposal, which will take place at Langton Community Hall, Stonton Road, Church Langton, on Wednesday, 13 May from 6pm-8pm.
Lightsource Renewable Energy said the site would be screened from local residents by existing hedges and woodland, as well as by new planting.
It said the site would produce enough “green energy” to power 1,400 homes, and that the local landowner would still be able to graze sheep on the land between the solar panels.
The solar farm would connect to the national power network via a new substation on Langton Road.
