Cabinet secretary for economy, jobs and fair work, Keith Brown has granted planning consent for a new 19-turbine wind farm in the Lammermuir Hills.
It is predicted that the Aikengall IIa wind farm will generate up to £9.4m in community benefit and will lead to the creation of 100 jobs.
The announcement comes just days after plans to construct a new 22 turbine wind farm in the Highlands were also given the go ahead.
Brown said: "Once operational, the Aikengall IIa wind farm will generate up to £9.4m in community benefit, while producing enough electricity to power almost 35,000 homes and bringing jobs and investment to local communities.
"Renewable energy sources generated more than 56% of gross electricity consumption in Scotland in 2015, helping support our world-leading ambitions to become a low-carbon economy.
"The growth of onshore wind in recent years has been a key factor in the expansion of renewable energy in Scotland: creating jobs, providing secure and low-carbon energy and delivering significant local benefits."
