Amonix Inc. has signed a lease for a new 214,000 square-foot manufacturing facility on North Pecos Road in North Las Vegas, Nev., that will bring 278 green private-sector clean energy jobs to the southern part of the state.
The company intends to hire local residents to fill the management, technical and productions jobs. The manufacturing facility will be up and running by the end of the year.
‘The future of renewable energy manufacturing is happening right here, right now in North Las Vegas,’ says Rep. Shelley Berkley, D-Nev. ‘The Amonix commitment to Nevada will help propel ongoing efforts to make the Silver State a world leader in solar production while also creating local jobs and promoting economic growth.’
The company will use its new North Las Vegas facility to manufacture solar power systems for additional installations in Nevada and for export to neighboring states. In addition, the new manufacturing facility will be powered by an Amonix 7700 System as part of its electrical power source.
When at full capacity, the manufacturing plant will operate 24 hours per day, turning out solar equipment with a production capacity of 150 MW annually, according to the company.
