Environmental Investments

As a predominantly coal-fired producer, DPL is committed to operating in an environmentally responsible and compliant manner. DP&L has invested approximately $800 million in environmental protection controls in recent years, including a $600 million investment in flue gas desulfurization equipment, commonly called scrubbers, to significantly reduce sulfur dioxide emissions, produce cleaner air, and comply with environmental regulations.

We built the largest utility-owned solar array in SW Ohio, and together with AES, built the first advanced energy storage facility in the state. By testing renewable energy sources, installing electric vehicle charging stations, and restoring natural prairie lands, we can make our region a cleaner, more environmentally-friendly place for us all.
