People were invited to have their say and to ask questions about plans for a solar farm development in Guilden Morden.
The public consultation event was held by solar energy company UKSP last week.
The proposal covers a 242-acre area at Rectory Farm and the company say a community fund would be set up to support local good causes during its 25 year lifeline.
The company plan to grow crops alongside the solar panels in a process known as agrivoltaics.
Protesters keen to stop the solar farm development made their voices clearly heard outside the exhibition venue in the village hall in Fox Hill Road on Friday.
The protest group, made up of local people, also attended consultation exhibitions held at Wrestlingworth and Tadlow for similar development proposals.
Each farm is under the ownership of the Wentzel Partnership.
