Glastonbury’s new 'biggest fan'

Octopus Energy erected Glastonbury’s ‘biggest fan’ to power food stands at Glastonbury Festival in the UK.

A wind turbine by energy company Octopus Energy will help contribute more sustainable power for food stands at Glastonbury Festival, providing the energy for thousands of clean snacks and meals for over 200,000 festival goers. The wind turbine is 20 metres tall with 8 metre-long blades and is finished off with Octopus tentacles wrapped around its purple tower and pink blades.

The temporary structure was erected in a day in William’s Green field, near the famous Pyramid stage. Octopus has also installed solar panels to complement the wind turbine, along with a battery to store the green energy produced.

The wind turbine and solar panels will supply clean energy to a microgrid which will power food vendors in the field so they can serve up snacks made with super low-carbon energy. The microgrid is expected to produce up to 300kWh of energy per day – enough to power 300 fridges.

Octopus Energy has already become the ongoing energy provider to Worthy Farm, providing 100% renewable electricity to the iconic dairy farm which hosts the Festival, and together they plan to increase the use of renewable energy in future festivals. The partners are also working with the Festival’s long-term, temporary power team on site, to explore providing even more sustainable energy to the Festival in future years.
