HAYWARD ? The power plant that Calpine Corp. wants to build in west Hayward would be a safety risk to passing aircraft, the Federal Aviation Administration says in a letter addressed this week to state energy officials. The California Energy Commission was set to vote on and most likely approve the 600-megawatt plant in a Sacramento meeting last week but postponed the decision because an FAA official ? less than a half-hour before the hearing ? urged the commission to halt.
