Wind farms should be substantially cut and fossil fuels such as shale gas should be exploited, according to a review of Scottish Conservative energy policy.
The shake-up calls for councils to be given the power to halt all wind farm applications for a year and suggests homeowners should be compensated for loss value because of turbines.
The party says it wants to shift the balance away from onshore wind to other renewable sources. New nuclear power stations should also be built to replace Hunterston B and Torness.
Tory leader Ruth Davidson unveiled the policy review in Falkirk.
"This is a comprehensive review of Scotland's energy needs, which does not focus narrowly on one particular part of the industry to meet demand. Crucial to keeping the lights on in years to come is an energy mix made up of renewables, nuclear and oil and gas. If we get this balance right then we can minimise the cost for consumers and the impact on our communities up and down the country."
The SNP Government is opposed to new nuclear power in Scotland and set a 100% renewable electricity target for 2020, based on the current level of consumption.
In October last year First Minister Alex Salmond announced a new goal to meet half of Scotland's electricity demand from renewable energy by 2015.
The Conservative review, called Power with Responsibility, set out a wide range of policies. They include a clearer taxation regime to encourage shale gas and coal-bed methane exploration, changes to planning laws to help improve energy efficiency in older buildings and more support for wave, tidal, hydro and carbon-capture and storage schemes.
Struan Stevenson, a Tory MEP, said: "The march of the wind farms under Alex Salmond and the SNP has to be brought to a halt. The figures are quite stark. The thousands of turbines in operation, being built or in the planning stage, mean that Scotland will easily overshoot its electricity target."
He added: "We have always said appropriately sited wind turbines can play a role in a mixed energy-source environment. Instead, the Scottish Government is ignoring other sources such as nuclear and pinning all its hopes on a form of energy that has been found to be unreliable and intermittent, not to mention hugely unpopular with the general public."
