FRANKFURT, Germany, Nov. 27, 2012

FRANKFURT, Germany, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ReneSola Ltd ("ReneSola" or
the "Company") (NYSE: SOL), a leading global manufacturer of solar
photovoltaic ("PV") modules and wafers, today announced its 300 watt ("W")
multicrystalline solar module has passed the potential-induced degradation
("PID") test performed by TUV SUD, a leading provider of testing, inspection
and certification solutions.


The PID test was conducted by TUV SUD to assess loss of power output of solar
modules under severe conditions of high voltage, high temperature and high
humidity. ReneSola's 300 W multicrystalline solar module was exposed to 1,000
volts of bias voltage at a temperature of 85 degrees Celsius and a relative
humidity of 85% for 96 consecutive hours. During the test, ReneSola's maximum
degradation of power output was 1.34%, significantly below the maximum
allowable power output degradation of 5%.

Mr. Xianshou Li, ReneSola's chief executive officer, commented, "The fact that
our high-wattage 300 W poly module passed TUV SUD's PID test by such a large
margin underscores its value proposition. Solar developers not only get more
power per square foot with this module, but also a long life cycle with
minimal degradation and reliable power output. PID is an important purchasing
factor for solar developers, particularly if the modules are to be used in
areas of high humidity and high temperatures. Our TUV SUD test result should
reassure customers of the reliability of our solar modules and demonstrate our
commitment to producing high-quality solar products."
