The natural landscapes will:
- reduce noise and emissions caused by mowing.
- provide an aesthetic, natural buffer between DP&L's equipment and adjacent properties.
- restore what had been prairie in the northeastern part of our service area prior to the settlement of Ohio.
DP&L has many locations throughout the Miami Valley where it will be planting prairie grass. The company plans to plant grass on some of its properties during a multiple-year project throughout West Central Ohio. Properties where prairie grass will be planted include transmission right-of-way or unoccupied/idle properties but do not include land on or adjacent to substation properties.
