CHANGZHOU, China, Oct. 25, 2012

CHANGZHOU, China, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Trina Solar Limited (NYSE:
TSL) ("Trina Solar" or the "Company"),a leading integrated manufacturer of
solar photovoltaic (PV) products, today announced that  it has obtained Carbon
Footprint Verification (the "Verification") for the Company's solar PV modules
from the British Standards Institution (BSI), a leading international
standards and certification body.

In accordance with PAS 2050:2011 and ISO 14067 (DIS) 2012-1-6, BSI verified
the greenhouse gas emissions during the life cycle of the Company's
monocrystalline and multicrystalline solar PV modules. The Verification
involves assessing the carbon footprint at various stages of the product life
cycle, such as the acquisition of raw materials, process activities phase and
packaging. It provides dependable evidence of the environmental benefits of
Trina Solar's products. In quantifying the amount of CO2 emitted during the
life cycle of the Company's modules, the findings suggest a relatively short
carbon payback time, given reasonable assumptions on the carbon offset
potentials of the modules during their usage period.

"This verification demonstrates Trina Solar's active commitment to sustainable
development and a low carbon economy," said Mr. Jifan Gao, CEO and Chairman of
Trina Solar. "We strive to continuously reduce the carbon footprint of our
manufacturing and commercial operations through technological innovation and
efficiency enhancements."

"We are pleased to have supported Trina Solar in their product carbon
footprint verification," said Dr. Yi Min Gao, Managing Director of BSI China.
"As a pioneer in the solar industry, Trina Solar continues to display its
dedication to corporate social responsibility and environmental protection.
BSI looks forward to continuing to work with Trina Solar to raise awareness of
environmental protection."
