The Calico Solar Energy Project, now shelved, was a proposed photovoltaic power station to be located in San Bernardino County, California on 4,600 acres (1,900 ha) of Bureau of Land Management land. It would have been a mixed design of 618 MW fixed tilt and dual axis photovoltaics.
Originally it was stirling engine design and the company involved was Tessera Solar. The project was approved by Ken Salazar, Secretary of the Interior, on October 20, 2010. On December 1 project received approval from the California Energy Commission, but on December 23 Southern California Edison decided to cancel its power purchase agreement for the project. Then project was sold to K Road, and redesigned using photovoltaics.
