Success Stories with Amonix CPV

Amonix designs and manufactures commercial solar power systems that produce more energy per acre than any other solar installations, thanks to its concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) technology.

In addition, Amonix solar projects use no water in power production and require no site grading or other special preparation for its land use.

In fact, our plants become operational the day they are erected on site as a result of their modular, factory-fabricated design.

With over 17 years of experience on the ground in commercial solar power – the longest track record in the industry – Amonix has proven its product is the best choice for utility-scale solar installations in climates that are sunny and dry.

Explore some of the reasons why Amonix customers consider their solar projects to be success stories:

Cogentrix CPV Power Plant in Alamosa, CO - 30 MW AC
In March, 2012, Amonix completed commissioning on 504x 7700 systems at the Cogentrix power plant in Alamosa, CO. This plant has been operating above expectation for over two years and is the largest CPV plant in the US. At the time of commissioning it was the largest CPV power plant in the world, and may still hold that title. The performance of Amonix CPV systems at Alamosa continues to serve as a true real world demonstration of the robustness, reliability and bank-ability of Amonix CPV techology.

NextEra CPV Power Plant in Hatch, NM - 5 MW AC
In June, 2011 Amonix completed commissioning of what was at the time the largest CPV installation in the US. Under ownership of NextEra, the Amonix enabled CPV power plant in Hatch, NM is still the second largest CPV installation in the US and bring 5 MW of power to the local community. It is comprised of Amonix 7700 systems.

University of California at Irvine - 2x 7700 Generators
Under partnership with UCI and the California Energy Commission, Amonix installed two of their 7700 units behind the Anteater athletic center at the University in Irvine. These systems provide 63kW of AC power each to the university and are the systems closest to Amonix headquarters in Seal Beach, CA

Cal Poly Pomona - 2x 7700 Generators
After 12 years of partnership, Amonix recently installed two new CPV solar power systems at the John T. Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies on the Cal Poly Pomona campus. The two solar arrays will generate 210,000 kW hours of clean, renewable energy annually, offsetting 85 metric tons of greenhouse gases per year.
