Site description

Dayton Power and Light Company’s Killen Power Plant is located in Adams County, OH, along the banks of the Ohio River. DPLC began operations at Plant Killen in 1982 with a single, 618 MW coal-fired unit. On June 1, 2018, DPLC officially retired Plant Killen, moving their energy interests towards wind and solar projects. Plant Killen operates two onsite coal ash disposal units: Killen Station Bottom Ash Pond and Killen Station Fly Ash Pond. Both ponds storing CCR material are regulated under the CCR-rule. You can find the industry reported data here. For more information on Killen Power Plant, see EIP’s 2019 National Coal Ash report: Coal’s Poisonous Legacy.
