DP&L wants rate hike

A local power company says a rate hike that will amount to about $5 a month for the average customer is critical to its financial health.

Dayton Power & Light pleaded its case in a public hearing this week in which it got support and criticism.

The company says the increase would add up to $600 million over five years. It's critical because DP&L is losing customers and revenue.

The request has been criticized by industry and the Ohio Consumers' Counsel. The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio is expected to make a decision on the request sometime after March.

Dayton Power & Light serves more than 500,000 customers in 24 counties, including Logan, Champaign, Hardin, Shelby, Auglaize, and Union counties.
