The Shanxi Gaoping power plant was proposed in 2005, with initial documents accepted in 2007. The total investment of the project was about 5.5 billion RMB; 20% of which was registered capital and 80% of which was funded by bank loans. The power plant was meant to supply electricity to a planned south-east Shanxi-Jiangsu high-voltage protection (HVP) electricity transmission line. It was proposed along with two other power plants (totaling 9400 MW) to support this HVP line. However, the HVP line later shifted its route from south-east Shanxi to northern Shanxi. The three proposed power plants supporting the line then became unjustified, and there has been no news since 2017.
