Biggest DP&L Solar Power Plant in Ohio

The idea has finally become a reality. In 2008, Governor Strickland and DP&L began working on a plan to build and open a solar power plant in the Dayton, Ohio area. Why? To promote the movement to "go green"? Well, in a round about way, Yes.

The energy legislation that was passed by Ohio representatives will require 25% of all Ohio energy consumption to be solar energy by the year 2025. Though it is certainly a worthy investment, the amount of money required upfront is shocking. The cost for the Solar Power Plant located in Washington Township, Ohio is around $5 millions dollars!

According to DP&L, "Starting in July, a visitor center will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to provide information about solar power and up-to-the-minute performance of the array." It is located at 9975 Yankee St., Dayton, OH 45458.
