The firm aims to construct a total of 25 turbines on the site, which when complete will be capable of producing up to 50 megawatts of power, enough for 35,000 homes.
Simon Eddleston, development manager for UK onshore wind projects for E.ON, said the announcement was "excellent news for us and Scotland".
He added: "This is a major development for us and it's clearly a key development for the UK's renewable targets as it will displace around 72,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year."
E.ON recently announced it has repaired the offshore wind farm located at Blyth, which had been the first in the UK, and the site was now operational again.
