The power station would be located at Buranga Hot Springs, off the Fort Portal–Bundibugyo–Lamia Road in Bundibugyo District, approximately 62 kilometres (39 mi), by road, northwest of Fort Portal, the nearest large town. This location is approximately 356 kilometres (221 mi), by road, west of Kampala, Uganda's capital city. The coordinates of Buranga Hot Springs are 0°49'59.0"N, 30°10'01.0"E (Latitude:0.833062; Longitude:30.166947).
As part of efforts to diversify the national electricity sources, the government of Uganda licensed Green Impact Development Services (GIDS) to drill an exploratory well in the Buranga Hot Springs area. Pre-feasibility studies at this location have indicated subsurface water temperatures of 150 °C (302 °F) to 200 °C (392 °F), which are suitable for electricity generation. GIDS plans to drill three deep wells and to generate at least 30 megawatts from each well.
The cost of construction is budgeted at US$42 million.
