One of the Most Durable Modules on the Market

CHANGZHOU, China, Feb. 4, 2013

CHANGZHOU, China, Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trina Solar Limited(NYSE: TSL)
("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), a global leader in photovoltaic modules,
solutions, and services, today announced the 60-cell PDG5, the first in Trina
Solar's new line of dual rated frameless modules. The PDG5 is resistant to
potential induced degradation (PID) and micro-cracking, and does not require
grounding. The PDG5 is optimized for reliable performance under stressful
environmental conditions and is among the most durable modules on the market.

The PDG5 features front and back layers of special heat-strengthened glass,
and is among the first such crystalline silicon (c-Si) modules. By replacing
the traditional backsheet materials of conventional solar modules with
heat-strengthened glass, the PDG5 provides a heavy-duty solution for
environments of high temperature and humidity, conditions that can accelerate
performance degradation. The resulting module has increased resistance to
micro-cracking, potential induced degradation (PID), module warping, and
degradation from UV rays, sand, alkali, acids and salt mist.

By reducing the module's glass thickness from the industry standard of 3.2mm
to 2.5mm, and applying an antireflective coating to the front glass,
transmission is enhanced by an estimated 2.5%. MC4PLUS photovoltaic connectors
increase system reliability. Additionally, the modules are designed for higher
1000V IEC and 1000V UL applications, which enables longer installation runs to
enable improve cabling, hardware and labor installation costs. Additionally,
by eliminating the aluminum frame of conventional modules, grounding
requirements are eliminated, which can extend Balance of System (BoS) cost
savings for Trina Solar's customers. The new modules are backed by the
Company's 25-year linear power warranty.

"The new PDG5 continues the Company's commitment to provide better solutions
for Trina Solar's commercial and utility partners," said Zhiguo Zhu, Module
Business Unit President of Trina Solar. "Our customers have expressed
significant interests in PDG5 due to its numerous value propositions."

The dual-rated PDG5 has been designed to meet the requirements of both
commercial rooftop and utility-scale applications in all major markets.

The combination of diverse product offerings and services as well as continued
investment in innovative industry first products, clearly demonstrates Trina
Solar's industry leadership and expanding commitment to provide a full range
of solar solutions to its partners throughout the value chain. The PDG5 will
also be available as part of the Trinamount III DG system, a fast-installing
and non-penetrating PV module and mounting system for flat rooftop
applications. 

PDG5 is being readied for worldwide shipments in the second half of 2013.
