The proposed power station would require about 815 acres, and has an estimated investment of 6300 Crores. It would be built close to the proposed ports at Rajayyapeta and Kona, and use imported coal.[1] As of August 2015, although the project is still included on the Green Valley website, it appears to be on hold since there has been no further development in over three years and no further environmental permits have been sought.
