Many factories in the Medan Metropolitan Area are reducing their production scales or providing their own generators against the unstable power supply condition by PT. Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN). It means that the shortage of power and energy supply has seriously influenced the economic activities in North Sumatra, and consequently, it became one of the bottlenecks of economic growth.

The power development plan prepared by PLN shows that a serious power shortage occurred in the North Sumatra power system in 2007-2009 since the 11 planned power stations have faced some difficulties except for three projects under execution. Under such circumstances, the feasibility study conducted in 1981-1982 was reviewed and updated in 2004.

Consequently, the type of development scheme was reformed to a run-of-river type as a clean energy development project so that the project could achieve, without losing its original viabilities, the reduction of financial burden, mitigation of social environment impacts, and contribution to the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) policy.
