MUNICH, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Trina Solar Limited (NYSE:TSL) ("Trina Solar" or "the Company"), a global
leader in photovoltaic modules, solutions, and services, will be presenting
its product and service portfolio at Intersolar Europe 2013 (Hall A1, stand
280) - including its latest development in PV modules, Honey M, which comes
with the option of an integrated Trinasmart performance optimiser. In
addition, the company will illustrate its focus on top-in-class service
offerings and new direct sales models for installers. Trina Solar is also
developing its downstream activities, and will be stepping into project
development in the future as it broadens its strategy in the current
competitive environment.

The new Honey M module combines high-efficiency monocrystalline cells with
Trina Solar's world-record-setting Honey technology for the first time. The
TSM-DC05A is based on a 156mm cell platform, and its 60 black cells and black
frame make it particularly visually attractive. A module with a black
backsheet is also available. This product line is therefore particularly
suited for private residential and smaller commercial rooftop installations;
the efficiency rating is over 16 per cent. The panels are also especially
effective even in poor light conditions, and are capable of withstanding both
snow loads of up to 900kg (5400Pa) per module and wind loads of up to 2,400Pa.

Trina Solar also offers the Honey M with the option of an integrated
Trinasmart performance optimiser. Trinasmart enables the monitoring and
control of arrays at module level and increases the system performance - with
opacity effects and differing module performances within a string, for example
- by up to 20 per cent. Users have real-time access to all module data through
their smartphone or laptop, enabling them to monitor and control the system -
including the ability to switch off the entire array with a single click in
case of emergency. Trinasmart works with all inverters, can be simply wired
in, and also makes it possible to run longer-than-usual strings of modules.

Balance-of-system costs are reduced thanks to the exceptional efficiency of
Honey M modules, and the system delivers a particularly high energy output. As
with all its PV modules, Trina Solar's TSM-DC05A is covered by a 10-year
workmanship warrantee and a 25-year performance guarantee.

Alongside its traditional sales channels through distributors and specialist
dealers, Trina Solar is now offering installers the opportunity to order
selected products directly from the company. Installers benefit from fast and
straightforward access to the manufacturer and direct contact with both the
sales and technical support teams, enabling them to order products to meet
their specific current needs.

At Intersolar Europe 2013 installers and dealers have the opportunity to find
out about Trina Solar's Partner Plus programme and Training Academy. Both were
launched in the past year and enjoyed great success. Partner Plus offers
registered installers numerous advantages and privileges, such as personalised
technical support, first-hand product and installation advice, and active
sales support. Right from the day they register, all participants have access
to a freephone hotline through which they can receive help with questions
about products, technology, and services, and the Partner Plus programme
itself. Participating installers receive points for the sale of Trina Solar
products, as well as for participating in the online seminars and workshops
run by the Trina Solar Training Academy. The points they collect can then be
exchanged for rewards.

"Our customers value the local presence and availability of Trina Solar," said
Ben Hill, Head of Europe at Trina Solar. "We see ourselves as a partner to our
customers, and support them with highly reliable, certified products and
bespoke offers that help them to sell PV systems. We are delighted to be
attending Intersolar Europe 2013, and look forward to presenting our new
products, services, and sales models to installers, wholesalers, project
developers, and everyone else with an interest in solar electricity."
