DP&L gets $28 mil­lion for Wright-Patt power

Dayton Daily News - - BUSINESS -

DP&L has been awarded a con­tract for more than $28 mil­lion for ser­vices at Wright-Pat­ter­son Air Force Base, the Depart­ment of De­fense said Thurs­day.

The award to Day­ton Power and Light Co. is for elec­tric­ity sup­plied to the base. The con­tract ex­pires Dec. 31, 2019.

The Air Force Life Cy­cle Man­age­ment Cen­ter, based at Wright-Pat­ter­son, is the con­tract­ing ac­tiv­ity.

To­tal mil­i­tary and civil­ian em­ploy­ment at the base is ap­proach­ing 30,000 peo­ple. With key lo­gis­tics and re­search func­tions based at Wright-Pat­ter­son, the in­stal­la­tion is the largest sin­gle-site em­ployer in the state of Ohio.

Most re­cently, the U.S. Air Force named the base its pre­ferred home for the F-35 Light­ning II Hy­brid Prod­uct Sup­port In­te­gra­tor or­ga­ni­za­tion.

Such a des­ig­na­tion makes the base the world­wide sup­port hub for all F-35 cus­tomers — and opens the door to 400 new Day­ton-area jobs.
