Electricity to power as many as 1,000 homes could be created on farmland at Bressingham.
The development would be sited at The Oaks, Kenninghall Road, according to a planning application lodged with South Norfolk Council.
Farmer Des Aves wants to build an anaerobic digestion renewable energy facility as well as associated landscaping.
It would see the conversion of unwanted farm produce and manure to gas using large tanks.
The land to be used is south west of a complex of large agricultural buildings used for pig and chicken rearingand arable farming.
A reports says that planning permission was granted in July but has now had to be resubmitted because of charges which would see the use of slightly larger tanks and the structures would be mainly above ground.
The tanks would convert each year 12,500 tonnes of biomass - 8,500 tonnes of crops, maize and sugar beet - and 4,000 tonnes of manure.
