SAN JOSE, Calif. and CHANGZHOU, China, Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Trina
Solar Limited (NYSE: TSL) ("Trina Solar" or the "Company") offers the
following statement regarding the final determination of antidumping and
countervailing duties (AD/CVD) announced today by the U.S. International Trade
Commission (the "ITC") in the AD/CVD investigations of imports of crystalline
silicon photovoltaic cells into the United States from China.

The ITC announced today its determination that these imports caused "injury"
to the U.S. domestic industry. The ITC today also made negative findings with
regard to critical circumstances in this investigation. This means that there
will be no retroactive duties imposed on Trina Solar.As a result of the ITC's
affirmative determination, the DOC will issue antidumping and countervailing
duty orders on imports of these products, applying the AD/CVD rates applicable
to Trina Solar's imports into the United States announced by the DOC on
October 10, 2012.

Trina Solar is currently evaluating whether it is necessary and prudent to
appeal these final determinations issued by the ITC.

"We are disappointed by the Commission's vote to impose protectionist trade
measures, which we believe may slow solar-related investments in the United
States and delay affordable market access to our most efficient cell
technology-based products," said Jifan Gao, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer of Trina Solar. "As announced previously, we are prepared for this
outcome and will continue to abide by our contractual commitments. This will
not affect the offering of product lines that are not subject to these
duties."

"We are most thankful for the support and loyalty of our U.S. customers and
project and business partners over the past year," said Mark Mendenhall,
President of Trina Solar Americas. "We remain committed to expanding our
opportunities in the United States and throughout the Americas by offering our
customers products, solutions and services to help them achieve their goals."

To effectively serve its expanding business within and outsidethe United
States, the Company will continue to use the headquarters of its Americas
operations located in Silicon Valley to evaluate commercial partnership
opportunities in order to accelerate the delivery of innovative,
technology-driven products and solutions and to lower the cost of clean,
solar-produced power.
