Since our founding in 1911, DP&L has been a proud partner with Dayton and our surrounding communities. One of our goals is to protect the environment by supporting organizations that conserve or improve the natural world around us. To meet that goal, DP&L has invited communities in our service territory to enrich their cities or parks with Economic Development Grants through our Right Tree, Right Place program.
