DP&L lands $27.8 million Wright Patt power deal


Dayton Power & Light Co. has landed a $27.8 million contract with Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, according to the Department of Defense.

The amount covers the first year of a three-year agreement through 2020. Previously, DP&L was paid $83.9 million to provide electricity between 2015 through 2017, according to the utility. The base was given an 11 percent discount on DP&L rates for 36 months under the arrangement, according to the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.

The latest agreement is an extension of an earlier deal reached in October 2014, according to PUCO.

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, headquartered at Wright-Patterson, awarded the sole-source electricity contract.

Separately, DP&L and Wright-Patterson have a 50-year pact for the utility to own and maintain electrical equipment at the Miami Valley base. The pact began in 2011.

Wright-Patterson is the largest single-site employer in Ohio with an estimate of more than 27,000 civilian employees and military personnel and has a more than $4 billion impact on the regional economy.
