Powering Business

The City of Dover, Ohio, has exactly what it takes to help business to succeed in a competitive world.

For example, industries, institutions and retail locations in Dover count on a consistent supply of electric power, available at very low prices. That's because our homes and businesses are served by an independent power plant, first opened in 1910, that's been consistently upgraded and sustained under the ownership of the businesses and citizens who pay city taxes.

A reliable electrical power supply with affordable pricing – independent of the major electrical utility companies – has been a huge benefit for companies that work in tight budgets. Plus, this advantage is further enhanced by our low-cost natural gas purchasing program and our fiber optic system.

An Ideal Location for Shipping and Accessibility

  • Interstate 77 bisects our city with two exits providing convenient access for our five active industrial parks and downtown retail district.
  • Rail service runs directly through the city with access to industries.
  • Convenient airport access includes Akron-Canton Airport – the fastest growing airport in America. Not much further are international airports in Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Columbus. For small aircraft, we have a community airport nearby that can accommodate many corporate jets.
