DAYTON — “In a new state filing, Dayton Power & Light Co. puts itself on a path further from the use of coal in power generation.
The company said in the filing it will commit to selling its ownership in three generation stations while setting up an economic development fund for Adams County, where the utility earlier said it will close a pair of coal plants.
The local electric utility made those commitments and more in a filing this week before the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO).
The three stations whose ownership stakes DP&L would sell are the Conesville station in Conesville, Ohio, Miami Fort in North Bend, Ohio and Zimmer in Moscow, Ohio. All three are coal-fired facilities.
The company in January already identified two coal-fired stations on the Ohio River in Adams County for closure in mid-2018.”
