DPL Inc., the parent company of Dayton Power & Light (DP&L), was acquired by The AES Corporation on November 28, 2011. With the acquisition, AES made a $4.6 billion investment in the Miami Valley and is interested in maintaining DP&L’s presence in the community for the long term.
AES has a strong history of social responsibility and supporting the communities in which it operates. The economic development efforts, community support and employee involvement that DP&L has provided over the years will continue. The DP&L Foundation will remain an independent community-based organization supporting education, health and human services, economic development and the arts – just as it has since 1985.
