Amonix, a supplier of concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) systems, has inaugurated a 308 kW system at the River Mountains Water Treatment Facility owned by Southern Nevada Water Authority. U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid presided over the ceremony.
In addition, Amonix announced that plans to use $5.9 million of a $9.5 million investment tax credit from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act's Advanced Energy Manufacturing Tax Credit awarded this year to establish a new manufacturing facility in southern Nevada are under way, and that the facility will be open by the end of the year.
When fully operational, the facility will have an annual production capacity of 150 MW of CPV solar systems and employ 278 people in managerial, technical and production jobs, the company says.
