Partnering for relief efforts
We work as one team with our people, contractors, customers, partners and communities to respond to natural disasters or catastrophes in the communities. This includes making resources available, volunteering, and supporting the front-line workers and organizations before, during and after an event.
In September 2017, Hurricane Maria left Puerto Rico devastated. AES provided 1,500 gallons of diesel to the Puerto Rico Sewage Authority supporting the water plant servicing Guayama, the community where our plant is located.
Since 2015, DP&L has partnered with The Salvation Army to provide emergency relief funding to customers who are facing disconnection and cannot pay their electric bills due to unexpected life events.
In 2019, the Dayton, OH area needed AES’ help following the devastation caused by 19 tornadoes that touched down in the late hours of May 27 into early the next morning. AES supported our people and the community in the immediate recovery and rebuilding efforts.
