The greenlight has been given to build the world's biggest offshore wind farm.
The East Anglia ONE project will be built off the Suffolk coast and will cost around £2.5 billion with work due to get underway next year.
ScottishPower Renewables say it will create up to 3,000 jobs during construction and they claim it'll generate enough electricity to power 500,000 homes or the majority of the households in Suffolk and Norfolk.
The project includes investing £25m deal with the Port of Lowestoft to be the home of the windfarm for 30 plus years, during construction and operation phases.
