Dayton Power & Light Features

Even in a world where deregulation is the norm, DP&L is doing more to earn its customers’ business, ensure quality customer support, and provide safe, reliable power. Power line safety and customer satisfaction are vital components to the DP&L philosophy, as is long-term sustainability.

Green power is more than a fad, and as keepers of the Miami River, Dayton Power and Light is faced with a unique challenge to produce the power necessary to keep homes and businesses running without damaging these fragile waterways. Protecting the environment with sustainable power is important to DP&L’s business model.

Here are a few programs offered to get customers involved and provide outstanding service:

  • “Right Tree, Right Place.” Tree placement continues to be a problem for aerial power line maintenance, requiring numerous man hours to trim trees out of power systems to prevent outages. The Right Tree, Right Place program not only encourages tree planting, but the right type of tree planting near power lines so that future power workers won’t have to trim tree branches out of lines.
  • Excel at customer service. DP&L’s Customer Solutions Center was recently recognized as a Certified Center of Excellence by Benchmark Portal. In addition, DP&L recently ranked in the top 10 in the J.D. Power Midwest Midsize Residential Customer Satisfaction Survey. Through their interactive Outage Center, they also provide excellent customer communications and outage tracking when they need it the most.
  • Energy efficiency programs. DP&L offers a number of energy efficiency programs to their electricity customers, whether residential or commercial. From rebates for ENERGY STAR appliances to appliance recycling to keep junk appliances from filling up landfills or being dumped into wild areas, DP&L is always looking for more ways to help their customers become more efficient.
  • Electric vehicle charging stations. So far, DP&L has installed 20 electric vehicle charging stations across its service area, primarily in high traffic areas where they’ll get the most use. This Ohio utility also maintains a database of electric vehicle charging stations so that electric vehicle owners can easily locate and utilize this equipment. The better the infrastructure for electric vehicles becomes, the more people will be interested in adopting the technology.

Ohio electric utilities are doing more than ever to be both creators of electricity for their local areas and stewards of the environment. Forward-thinking utilities like DP&L are certainly ones to be proud of, especially considering their focus on sustainability and customer service.
