Amonix raises a boat load of cash from KP and others

"Amonix designs and manufactures concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) solar power systems which require no water, use land more efficiently, and produce more energy per acre than any other solar technology. Amonix was founded in 1989 and is headquartered in Seal Beach, CA, with additional facilities in Torrance, CA.

With 20 years in business, 15 years of real-world CPV deployments, and seven generations of system development, Amonix is the proven best choice for utility-scale solar in sunny and dry climates. Designed for utility-scale installations, Amonix systems deploy quickly and achieve optimal performance and reliability while delivering renewable energy at industry-leading low operating costs based on 25% system efficiency (31% module, 39% production cell).

This unparalleled real-world CPV experience, coupled with highly skilled employees and a management team with deep expertise in solar, finance, technology, and manufacturing, makes Amonix the clear leader in the CPV industry."
