Success Stories

The company has a legacy of over 70 MW of installed CPV solar power systems deployed globally.  These installations have proven the reliabiltiy, predictability and value of the Arzon Solar CPV technology under rigorous, real-world conditions.

 

Recent Projects:

Bryce Canyon National Park Visitors Center ZNE Installation – 0.2 MW AC
In October, 2015 Arzon Solar completed the installation and commissioning of a first of its kind industrial scale, high performance solar installation in a US National Park. Designed to take the Bryce Canyon National Park Visitors Center to a Zero Net Energy (ZNE) facility, it also serves as a world class public education tool reaching a whopping 1.75 million visitors a year.

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 – 135 kW AC
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 – 135 kW AC
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.

Historical Projects:

SNWA River Mountains Water Treatment Facility
Using Amonix CPV technology to power its facility, the Southern Nevada Water Authority generates clean water with a low impact on a fragile desert environment.

UNLV Center for Energy Research
Its capacity independently verified by Sandia National Laboratories, the Amonix 53kW (AC) solar installation at UNLV-CER is capable of converting one-fourth of the energy it receives from the sun into useable electricity.

NV Energy Clark Station
The Amonix commercial solar power plant at the Clark Generating Station in Nevada has generated hundreds of megawatt-hours for grid power since starting up in 2006, much of it for use during midday peak energy demand times.

Energías del Tietar
In Spain, Amonix CPV technology is fueling the economy while protecting the environment with dual-purpose land use, allowing the land to be used for power generation and agriculture simultaneously.

Parques Solares de Navarra – 12MW DC
The largest CPV solar installation under the sun at this time was deployed in three incremental phases, between 2006 and 2008 and was based off Amonix CPV technology in collaboration with a European licensee. The total project installed 12 MW of Amonix Generation 5 CPV technology.
