certification, reflecting Trina Solar's continued commitment to its PV testing
capabilities and its emphasis on product quality and reliability.

framework agreement to strengthen collaboration.

of our products," commented Mr. Zhiguo Zhu, SVP and President of Trina Solar's

affirms that our testing staff, standards and capabilities are of the highest
caliber in the PV industry."

Solar's commitment to research and development and product excellence, which

markets. In order to overcome the challenges we face in the global PV industry
today, Trina Solar is working tirelessly to improve the overall value of its
PV products and the affordability of solar-generated electricity."

continuing to work together in advancing safety and quality standards in the
