Dayton Power & Light Energy, a sister company of Dayton Power & Light Co., and Bellefontaine have developed a plan to reduce the cost of electricity for city residents.
“Bellefontaine has a franchise agreement with DP&L to provide distribution services in the city,” said Mayor Adam Brannon. “We’ve been able to negotiate a reduced rate for residents because of the relationship the city has with DP&L.”
Under deregulation, residents are not bound to participate, but the mayor said the 6.25 cents per kilowatt hour is the lowest currently available in this area.
The current rate is 9.9 cents per kilowatt hour.
To take advantage of the reduced rate, customers must enroll in the program, according to a letter that went out to customers in recent weeks.
The reduced rate is good through the December 2014 meter reading. Customers may enroll in any other DP&L program during the contract period without an early termination fee.
To enroll, visit dplenergy.com/community and make sure to have a recent DP&L bill handy.
The Web site will guide customers through the process.
Customers enrolled with other suppliers should carefully review the terms and conditions of current contracts as there may be early termination fees.
