The Dayton Power and Light Company (DP&L), a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE:AES) , is working with seven communities to identify, improve and increase awareness of potential development sites through its Economic Development Fund.

In October, DP&L announced the availability of $6 million over three years to stimulate growth of new and expanding businesses in the Miami Valley. The Economic Development Fund was created, as part of DP&L’s Electric Security Plan, to support initiatives that market west Central Ohio through four programs, including the Site Certification program.

The Site Certification program provides professional expertise and education to communities for completing essential site preparation and due diligence to better position undeveloped sites to attract business investment. Seven locations successfully submitted applications and recently took part in site visits by consultants from McCallum Sweeney Consulting. At the end of March, each location will receive a full analysis of the site and learn if it has been selected to complete the final phase of site certification.

The seven locations are:

  • A general industrial park at Millcreek and Kuther Roads in Sidney.
  • A super park at Interstate 71 and US 35 in Fayette County.
  • A general industrial park at Interstate 70 and Arlington Road in Brookville.
  • A general industrial park on Innovation Way in Greene County.
  • A general industrial park on Commerce Center Boulevard in Fairborn.
  • A general industrial site on Patton Street and Enterprise Lane in Xenia.
  • A large park on Airborne Road in Wilmington.

On March 2, DP&L will host a webinar for interested communities to learn more about the program. To register, contact DP&L at or visit
