According to the company, the project would create enough electricity to power 24,000 homes and generate investment of £5 million in the local region.
E.ON's onshore origination manager, Darren Cuming, claimed that the site was "the ideal location" for the project.
He added: "We are now satisfied that our proposal will comply with Scottish government and local plan policy, with minimal impact on the environment and the local population."
Earlier this month, E.ON announced that it has increased the cost of its gas and electricity by 26 per cent and 16 per cent respectively.
