Octopus Fan Zone

Welcome to the Fan Zone

The Octopus Fan Zone will bring together communities across the UK who would love wind energy in their area & those who want to know more.

Together, we are working towards one common goal...

Build More Fans

Onshore wind can help to drive positive change for communities all over the UK. With the Fan Zone, we want to create a fun yet informative, onshore wind immersive experience that helps you to understand what living by an Octopus Energy turbine could be like.

Fan Zone Map

What does the UK have to say about onshore wind?

In the UK, we found that 9 out of 10 people support onshore wind.

We've had over 26,000 requests for Fan Club turbines across the UK, and this number continues to grow.

On our heat map, you'll notice clusters of support surrounding our Octopus Fan Clubs. You'll also notice more pink hot spots spread all over the UK - we'd love to turn this map pink.

The UK needs more onshore wind. We need your help in order to Build More Fans where people want them. Register your interest here - be a part of the green energy transition and help us move towards a cheaper and greener future.

At first, I was sceptical about the savings I could make. I was staggered when the savings were credited to my account. I now keep my eye on the fan club regularly and try to use my washer and dryer.

I'm really impressed with Octopus and how they are helping our local community save money . It has helped me feel closer to the turbine and understand how they work.

I think the Fan Club is a brilliant idea. Not only does it make me think about how and when I use energy but it is also helping in the battle with climate change and saving me money as well, win win all round.

Active Projects Info

Woodlands Farm

We recently purchased an onshore wind turbine (a turbowind) in Bodmin, Cornwall. The turbine is currently underperforming. It's not generating enough electricity and it provides no tangible benefit to the local community - with repowering, we want to change this.

Our intention with Fan Zone is to help people see the reality of having an Octopus Energy Turbine near them. Our move to support the development of onshore wind is people and community-focused. We think onshore wind and opportunity are synonymous and should be for the people close by.
