Trina Solar Recognized as a "Top Performer" Module Manufacturer for Sixth Consecutive Time

PVTIME - Trina Solar Co., Ltd ("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), the world's leading PV and smart energy total solution provider, has been recognized as a "Top Performer" for outstanding product reliability and performance among global PV module manufacturers by PV Evolution Labs (PVEL), the leading independent test laboratory for the global downstream solar industry.

The company is one of only two PV module manufacturers with worldwide
reach to gain the recognition for the sixth consecutive time since the
Top Performer designation was established.

The recognition is based on the results of
the Product Qualification Program (PQP), presented in the 2020 PV Module
Reliability Scorecard issued by PVEL, following factory inspections
that took place over the 18 months leading up to 2020. With a
focus on evaluating the performance of PV modules in terms of thermal
cycling, damp heat, dynamic mechanical load, potential-induced
degradation, PAN files, etc., the PQP
was designed to independently recognize manufacturers who outpace their
competitors in product quality and durability, and provide PV equipment
buyers and power plant investors with independent, consistent
reliability and performance data that supports effective supplier

Tristan Erion Lorico, head of PV
Module Business at PVEL, said: "Consistent top performance in the PVEL
PV Module Reliability Scorecard demonstrates a manufacturer's commitment
to product quality. As new products are introduced manufacturers must
adhere to strict quality control standards to maintain high levels of
reliability and performance of their products. We are honored to recognize Trina Solar as a Top Performer again and we look forward to testing future Trina products as the company continues to innovate."

Yin Rongfang, vice general manager and executive vice president of Trina Solar, said: "It is encouraging to see Trina Solar
being recognized as a Top Performer for the sixth time in a row by an
authoritative third party such as PVEL. With more than 20 years' of
technical know-how, Trina Solar is
committed to sustainability through the delivery of high power, highly
efficient and top-performing modules with proven quality and

"PV power represents a long-term, stable and sustainable solution. We
look forward to becoming the supplier of choice for more prospective
partners, providing them with highly reliable and ultra-high power
modules, such as the Vertex module. These top-performing modules will
continue to accelerate the adoption of PV power across the globe by
further improving the balance-of-systems costs and levelized cost of
