The Anllares power station was commissioned in 1982 with one 365 MW unit, operated by Termicas de Anllares.[1] The plant was built close to the mining deposits of El Bierzo and Laciana in the León province and Degaña in the Asturias province, which supplied the plant its coal fuel with an annual consumption of around 736,000 tons.[2]

In 2009, the plant emitted 275,000 tonnes of CO2.[1]

In 2017, the owners of the plant filed forms with the government seeking to close the plant due to rising operating costs and environmental protection/compliance costs. Their petition was approved by Regulatory Supervision Chamber of the National Markets and Competition Commission in June 2018.[3][4]

In December 2018, the plant was disconnected from the power grid; in June 2020, it demolished the plant's silos, and in November 2020 to June 2021, the chimney and cooling tower were demolished as well.[2]
