Amonix Staffing for Energy Jobs in Vegas

Sunday, October 31st, 2010

Amonix has announced they are recruiting for energy jobs in Vegas.

Nevada Senator Harry Reid broke ground for a new solar manufacturing plant that will put nearly 300 of Nevadans back to work. The clean energy company Amonix received a competitive Recovery Act tax credit of $5.8 million to open the 214,000 square foot facility where concentrating photovoltaic cells (CPV) will be manufactured.

Knowing the importance of consistent financing opportunities to the creation of a strong clean energy sector, Reid worked hard to pass the credits Amonix is using to fund the new facility. This new facility is proof of how the Recovery Act is delivering jobs for out-of-work Nevadans. Amonix has also previously received $15.6 million from the Department of Energy to develop the technology being produced at the plant.

Below are Reid’s prepared remarks:

“We all know we need to create jobs to get people back to work and to get our economy back on its feet. It’s the most important thing we can do right now, and it’s my most important job as your Senator.

“But I know just recovering won’t satisfy Nevada. We want to prosper. We want to lead. We want to be the envy of the world.

“That’s why we’re not just creating jobs. We’re creating green jobs. Jobs that can never be outsourced. Jobs that will make Nevada the leader in producing and exporting renewable energy. There is simply nowhere better in the world to generate solar energy than right here in Nevada. Now we have to turn that energy into jobs.

“That’s why I made sure the Recovery Act included almost $6 million in tax credits to help Amonix open this facility. Our investment has helped bring in much more private capital to make this possible. That’s exactly how the stimulus was supposed to work. So the next time you hear someone say the Recovery Act isn’t working, tell them to come here. They should talk to the nearly 300 Nevadans who will be working here every day.

“Amonix is exactly the kind of company that is going to help Nevada bounce back stronger than ever. I know you see what I see: a state with year-round sunshine, limitless renewable resources, acres upon acres of undeveloped land, and a skilled workforce eager to get back to work.

“By next summer, hundreds of Nevadans will be making solar modules right here in this building and even this manufacturing facility is green. I commend you on your effort to get LEED certified. With your technology that uses no water, little land and emits no pollution into the air, I’m confident you will.
