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.
