Calico is a company that has been under fire for its plans to sell its energy storage projects at a massive scale.
The company has made it clear that it will not be able to complete the Calico Power and Solar project by June 5, and instead will need to wait until after the California Supreme Court issues a decision on the project.
The project is in the middle of a legal fight over whether it should be allowed to proceed at all.
On Friday, the California Public Utilities Commission voted to allow Calico to proceed with the project without further delay.
The commission said it will hold an open house on Monday to get input from Calico on the plan.
The company has been pushing for the Calco project to go ahead, and a statement from the company said that they are now “working through the legal processes” with the state of California to move forward.
“We continue to be in the process of meeting with the parties involved in the Calcis proposal to fully understand the issues that have been raised and to work through those issues,” Calico said.
Calico is currently awaiting the court’s ruling on the state’s proposed permit for the project, and the company is seeking an expedited permit that would allow the project to proceed.
A number of other companies are working on projects at similar scale, and some have been given more time to complete them.
“There are a lot of projects that have not yet gone through the process,” Caleco CEO and founder Steve Liguori told Bloomberg News in a statement.
“Calico Power is a perfect example.
It was one of the largest coal-fired power plants in the country and now it is being turned off.
We’ve seen the impact of that, and we need to start moving forward.”
