The power station was reported as under development by the National Energy Technology Lab in May 2007. [1]

In November 2010, the Sierra Club reported that the the Kentucky Division for Air Quality returned Estill County Energy Partners' air permit application for on October 28. The Division determined that Estill's application was inadequate: "among other things, Estill failed to properly address national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions. Estill will need to submit a new air permit application if it wants to proceed with the project."[2]

In 2011, the Kentucky Division for Air Quality reported that the company had gone out of business. [3]
