K Road Power told the California Energy Commission in a letter that it no longer wanted to pursue the project “due to changed market conditions.”
The decision ended a torturous journey for a solar project that languished for some time before it lined up some development money and gained the energy commission’s approval in 2010. Its previous owner sold Calico to K Road shortly after. The Southern California Edison had signed a contract in 2005 to buy the electricity from Calico, but it canceled that contract just days before K Road announced it had bought Calico.
