"Seal Beach, CA – October 30, 2012 – Amonix Inc., the leading designer and manufacturer of concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) solar power systems, announced that they have successfully converted more than one third of direct sunlight into electricity. In May of this year, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) confirmed an outdoor operating efficiency rating of 33.5% for an Amonix module, breaking the previous 30.3% record also held by Amonix. Over several days of on-sun testing conducted by NREL, the module efficiency peaked at 34.2%. This is the highest efficiency ever reported under real-world, operating conditions for a solar PV module.

This record-breaking module efficiency rating is now internationally recognized as the gold standard in renowned publications as well as the most recent Solar Cell Efficiency tables publication, Version 40, released in August. Sarah Kurtz of NREL also cites this highest efficiency rating in her 2012 annual “state of the CPV industry” publication, “Opportunities and Challenges for Development of a Mature Concentrating Photovoltaic Power Industry.”
Amonix is the recognized leader in designing and manufacturing concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) solar power systems that require no water in power production, use land better, and produce more energy per acre than any other solar technology. With the longest track record of real-world CPV deployments in the industry, Amonix is proven to be the best choice for solar power systems in sunny and dry climates. Amonix is located in Seal Beach, California."
