The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) gave approval for Dayton Power & Light (DP&L) to charge customers in their territory “an estimated $4 million to provide discounted electricity to the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base next year,” Gongwer reports. DP&L and Wright-Patterson’s joint application says the base’s discount will make it more competitive for additional jobs should Congress realign military facilities again. According to the application, “[i]t is anticipated that the savings realized by the base as a result of this modified unique arrangement will be reinvested in the infrastructure of the base, which will in turn create additional direct and indirect job opportunities within the region.” WPAFB will receive a 14% discount in 2015 and an 11% discount the following two years. DP&L’s estimated cost to its average residential customers is approximately 41 cents each month.
