DAYTON, Ohio, Feb. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dayton Power & Light (DP&L) Company, a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), continues to accelerate the future of energy, and announced today its new name and brand identity. DP&L is now AES Ohio.
DP&L has provided safe, reliable, and affordable energy to our customers for more than a century. Since AES acquired DP&L in 2011, DP&L has refocused the business on transmission and distribution, while reliably serving customers in the Miami Valley at the lowest residential rates in Ohio. Drawing from AES' global expertise, scale and purpose, AES Ohio is accelerating technology and digital transformations to deliver greener and smarter energy solutions for customers. The AES Smart Operations Center, located in Dayton and expected to open later in 2021, is an example of this digital transformation and economic development. The center will use data analytics and digital tools to improve performance across AES' US and international generation portfolio.
The new name also comes with a new logo. However, some of DP&L's familiar colors are reflected in the new logo to illustrate the company's history.
"At AES Ohio, we are focused on modernizing our electric system to maintain the reliability our customers have come to expect while also strategically transitioning to new innovative digital solutions to continue to meet their future needs," said Kristina Lund, President of AES Ohio. "Our customers will not have to choose between reliability, affordability and sustainability. We are leveraging our global and local resources and expertise to ensure they can have all three."
