The company’s 73m high wind turbine near Market Weighton was lit up with a Happy Yorkshire Day message from both The Yorkshire Post and Octopus Energy.

The light projection was part of a number of events taking place across ‘God’s Own Country’ to celebrate Yorkshire Day.

It saw the turbine’s rotors turned into a white rose with a message to all of our readers going down the huge tower, while Octopus Energy’s projection saw them turned into a classic Yorkshire drystone wall.

The huge turbine is part of Octopus Energy’s local ‘Fan Club’ tariff, offering Octopus customers who are living near Market Weighton cheaper 100% renewable electricity when the turbines are spinning.
