I would like to know more about the Big Idea Zone: owning part of a wind farm. However, other than the OVO page of ‘Choose your package’ prices, there’s no more detailed explanation of the figures and no link to the T&Cs I can’t find a Help topic about it either, nor any discussion here. Any more info would be useful please.

Well, I guess this question does need an answer and people have already rumbled the fact I know more than I’m revealing. So I guess it won’t hurt too much to explain what this is all about.
There’s a small chance I may have also taken advantage of my detective skills and my Amazingly Magical Tricks to figure out a few more details, but the idea of the Big Ideas Zone is after all, exactly what it says on the tin. Almost everything in there relates to really big experimental ideas that someone in OVO’s dream team has come up with, and the idea is unique in some way, such as not being part of the usual stuff that OVO does.
While there’s no guarantee that everything which appears in the Big Idea Zone will become a thing, the more interest that members show in any of the ideas, the higher the chances that OVO will consider turning the idea into reality.
What I can say about the Wind Farm project is that yes, that wind farm project is a real thing that really does have a crowdfunding project campaign going on to try and make it happen. OVO wasn’t initially involved, but if OVO members are interested, then taking part in the Big Ideas Zone could result in OVO becoming a partner and making it available as an option in the future. :)
If it ever does become a reality, I will definitely try to make sure I find out as much as I can about it proactively from Tim and Jess so that I’m better informed before the questions get asked. While the ideas in the Big Idea Zone might not be ready yet and some might not make it, they’ll always be genuine ideas that someone at OVO has dreamed up as a result of a lightbulb moment. You never know what surprises could come next. :)
If you’re still unsure about the Big Idea Zone though, feel free to ask on the forum. We’ll try to help as best we can!
