CHANGZHOU, China, Jan. 14, 2013 /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
approval from the Gansu Provincial Development and Reform Commission to
develop a 50 MW grid-connected solar power plant project in Wuwei, Gansu. The
project is expected to support economic stimulus in a region challenged by
semi-desert conditions. The Wuwei municipality is well-suited for solar energy
production due to favorable irradiance and the ability to sell off electricity
to other regions in addition to supplying local needs.

"We are delighted to have been granted the rights to develop this solar
project in Wuwei, Gansu province," said Mr. Jifan Gao, Chairman and CEO of
Trina Solar. "This project will bring not only job opportunities to the Wuwei
region of Gansu, but also environmentally friendly renewable energy which is
vital to the overall economic development of the region."

Trina Solar has a long history of promoting the use of PV energy. As early as
2003, the Company completed the construction of 40 standalone power stations
in Tibet, providing much needed electricity to the Chamdo region. The central
and western regions will be the focus of China's economic and social
development in the coming decade. Trina Solar is dedicated to building a
reliable energy infrastructure in underdeveloped regions of China.
