The Southern Nevada Water Authority contracted with Amonix, Inc. in 2008 to procure 220 kWdc of their latest generation multi-junction cell High Concentration Photovoltaic systems (HCPV). This paper discusses the performance of the six HCPV systems that started operating in mid 2009. Data sets included show: a. Daily power performance; b. Power performance compared to the specified performance; c. Effect of field shading upon the daily power performance. What is demonstrated is the system power performance has not degraded during this initial period of operation and continues to meet or exceed the specified performance levels.
