Gift of Power

Anyone can get behind when unexpected things happen. The loss of a job, the death of a spouse, major medical bills or other financial hardships can come out of nowhere and make it difficult to stay current with your bills. 

DP&L will provide $165,000 this year, along with customer donations, to warm the homes and hearts of our neighbors in Ohio.
