Improving Lives in the United States

Through our two integrated utilities and various generation facilities, our people help meet current and increasing energy needs in the US in a sustainable way, while providing communities the opportunity for economic growth through the availability of reliable, affordable electric power.

The US SBU includes two utility businesses, Indianapolis Power and Light (IPL) and Dayton Power and Light (DPL). Both companies were named 2014 Utility Customer Champions by Market Strategies International. IPL improves the lives of our customers in the region by delivering electric service to more than 480,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers in Indianapolis and other central Indiana communities. The company ranked second in Midwest Mid-sized Utilities for the second straight year by J.D. Power Electric Utility Business Customer Satisfaction Survey. DPL, an energy holding company, serves our customers in the region via its principal subsidiaries—DP&L and DPLE.

  • DP&L generates, transmits, distributes and sells electricity to more than 515,000 customers in West Central Ohio. DP&L, solely or through jointly owned facilities, owns 2,510 MW of generation capacity and numerous transmission facilities.
  • DPLE owns peaking generation units representing 556 MW located in Ohio and Indiana.

DP&L received the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) Emergency Recovery Award for outstanding recovery following the June 2012 derecho, as well as the EEI Emergency Assistance Award for "tremendous support in the recovery from Hurricane Sandy" following the October 2012 storm.

Our US-based generation facilities serve customers in California, Hawaii, Maryland, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas and West Virginia. In California alone, AES Southland is one of the largest generators, accounting for approximately 5 percent of the state’s installed capacity and 17 percent of the peak demand for Southern California Edison. AES Southland’s three coastal power plants serve key areas designated as critical for local reliability and play an important role in integrating the increasing amounts of renewable generation resources in California.
