Qinghai Datong power station is a 2 x 300 MW subcritical coal plant commissioned in 2006 and majority-owned by China Huadian.
In 2019 it was reported that all but one coal plant in Qinghai had been mothballed due to competition from renewable energy and low energy demand. Mothballed plants appear to include unit 1 of Qinghai Datong power station, but not unit 2.
