Background on Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of CPI Baicheng power station, totaling 1,320 MW, were brought online in 2010. The plant is owned by CPI.[1][2]

Description of Expansion

CPI plans to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, with a total planned capacity of 2,000 MW.[3] The company said it eventually plans to make the power station 5,320 MW total, but these plans remain tentative.[4]

2016: Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

Due to new restrictions announced during 2016 by the National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission, further capacity expansions at this location appear to be on hold or cancelled. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.


In July 2015, China Power Investment Corporation (CPI) and State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation (SNPTC) merged to become State Power Investment Corporation (国家电力投资集团), one of the five largest state-owned electricity producers in the People's Republic of China.[5]
