Iberdrola Renewables donates $7,000 to new rabbit barn

VAN WERT – The Van Wert Youth Rabbit Exhibitors and the Rabbit Barn Committee recently celebrated Iberdrola Renewables’ donation of $7,000 to fund the installation of the electrical system for a new rabbit barn at the Van Wert County Fairgrounds.

The building has housed many different animals over the years but has been the home of the County Fair Rabbit Exhibits for the past five decades. In recent history, an average of 600 rabbits by 110 junior fair exhibitors have moved into the barn for the fair. In 2013, it was one of the largest exhibits with 114 exhibitors who showed 640 total rabbits in the barn.

“We are delighted to help with this new building and potentially have an impact that could last for another 120 years at the venerable Van Wert County Fairgrounds,” said Iberdrola Renewables project developer Dan Litchfield. “It was a natural fit for us to help with the electrical system here, as we are in the area to help harvest the wind that howls over everyone’s properties and convert it to usable electricity. Each of our turbines can capture up to 2,700 horsepower from the wind and generate about 5 million kilowatt-hours per year, enough for about 500 average Ohio houses. We are hoping to build another wind farm in Van Wert County and would like to see wind turbines continue to proliferate almost as quickly as rabbits.”

The new rabbit barn will take a tradition western prairie shape, similar to many of the other livestock barns on the fairgrounds. It will measure 120 feet by 60 feet, which is similar to the present rabbit barn.
