Governmental resolution to build Iriklinskaya TPP was adopted on June 8, 1962. The first 300 MW power generation unit was launched in November, 1970. The second power generation unit was launched in December of that same year. After the remaining four units were launched between 1971 and 1974, the first 1800 MW stage of Iriklinskaya TPP was fully commissioned in 1975. Unit 7 was launched in December 1978, and on November 17, 1979, TPP expansion program was completed with the launch of Unit 8.

Iriklinskaya Thermal Power Plant is the most high-output power plant in The Southern Urals. The station is composed of 24 units, among them are 8 power islands with a capacity of 300 MW each (after the upgrade of the second power island the capacity has been increased up to 330 MW) and a hydro power plant with a capacity of 30 MW.

The Hydro plant located 20 km away from the TPP was built in 1958 together with Iriklinskoye Reservoir for for flood control of Ural River. Electricity from Iriklinskaya TPP is used in Orenburg Region, Chelyabinsk Region and Republic of Bashkortostan. Some electricity is also exported to Kazakhstan.
