BrightView, a solar tech firm that hopes to improve the production of photovoltaic solar cells, has raised $6 million in a first round of funding. (The company is not to be confused with BrightView Technologies, an optics company in North Carolina.)

Rather than manufacturing its own cells, BrightView plans to work with other companies to optimize its manufacturing and lower costs. Due to its proximity to Europe, the company plans to work there; one of its investors is German firm Hasso Plattner Ventures.

The other investor in the round was Israel Cleantech Ventures. BrightView is located in Petach-Tikva, Israel.
