A WIND turbine will supply renewable energy to food stalls and bars at Glastonbury Festival this year.

Octopus Energy’s bright pink wind turbine ‘Gusty Spinfield’ is returning to the festival to help power the Williams Green area, including Car Henge and new venue Terminal 1.

The 28 metre-tall temporary wind turbine can produce enough green electricity to power the equivalent of 300 fridges, and is complemented by a battery so that surplus wind energy can be stored and not go to waste. 

Octopus has been Worthy Farm’s energy provider since last year, supplying 100% renewable electricity to the dairy farm.  

Greg Jackson, Founder and CEO of Octopus Energy, said: “The winds of change are blowing through Glastonbury Festival.

"We’re thrilled to be back for a second year, showing that renewables can be built quickly and generate much-needed cheap green electricity where needed.

"The festival has long led the way in sustainability in its sector, and it’s brilliant to be part of this and bring even more clean solutions to festival-goers this year.”
