1366 Technologies, a Lexington, MA-based company developing more efficient photovoltaic panels, has raised a $5.2 million Series B round from North Bridge Venture Partners and Polaris Venture Partners, says company president Frank van Mierlo. An SEC filing puts the total offering amount for the round at $6.2 million, but van Mierlo says the round closed at $5.2 million, with $5 million coming from the venture firms and the remainder coming from investments by 1366 management. He says investors were spurred by funding 1366 received from the U.S. Department of Energy Advanced Projects Research Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) program, which looks to fund innovations in energy efficiency.
