    Dayton Power and Light's Gift of Power Helping Local Families Stay Warm this Winter

    Dayton Power and Light's Gift of Power Helping Local Families Stay Warm this Winter

    Dayton, Ohio - November 10, 2016 - The Dayton Power and Light Company (DP&L), a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), is proud to announce the Gift of Power program's second season. The fund provides emergency relief for DP&L customers struggling to pay their winter heating bills.

    Gift of Power helps customers who are just above the income guidelines for other Ohio Energy Assistance programs and are experiencing a financial hardship, such as the loss of a spouse or an unexpected cost, making it difficult to stay current with their bills. The goal is to prevent disconnection or help quickly restore customers who have been disconnected. The program begins the day after Martin Luther King Jr. Day (January 17, 2017) and runs through April 15, 2017. 

    The program's inaugural year was very successful, helping over 400 families in our service territory. "The launch of Gift of Power more than exceeded our expectations. We were hoping for a strong first year, and thanks to the generous donations and support from our community, that happened. The response was tremendous from our customers, employees and other stakeholders, who donated an additional $60,000 to DP&L's initial funding. We are grateful to everyone who helped our Ohio neighbors stay warm," said Tom Raga, DP&L's President and CEO. 

    We are again partnering with The Salvation Army, who will be administering the program.  The kickoff will launch with a $115,000 DP&L corporate grant.
