The Conservative energy minister has condemned the "peppering" of wind farms across the countryside, saying: "Enough is enough."
In remarks which will inflame coalition tensions, John Hayes said the spread of turbines "seems extraordinary" and they should no longer be "imposed on communities".
He has ordered a new analysis of the case for onshore wind power.
Mr Hayes, who was appointed to the brief in last month's reshuffle, is believed to support a moratorium on new onshore wind farms.
