K Road Drops Newberry Springs Solar Project

(June 28) NEWBERRY SPRINGS—K Road Calico Solar LLC has pulled the plug on its plans for the Calico Solar Energy Project.
According to the California Energy Commission, New York-based K Road Calico Solar last week requested to surrender the license that it acquired from Tessera Solar in December 2010, two months after Tessera was issued a permit for a 663.5-megawatt solar project on 4,613 acres of Bureau of Land Management property roughly 17 miles east of Newberry Springs on October 20, 2010.
Despite its intended provision of renewable energy sufficient to power 200,000 households, the project was faced with opposition from  environmentalists and nearby property owners, among others.
