CHANGZHOU, China, July 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Trina Solar Limited (NYSE: TSL)
("Trina Solar" or "the Company"), a global leader in photovoltaic (PV)
modules, solutions and services, today announced that it has received the new
International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 61730-2 standard certification
with Class A Fire Safety from TUV Rheinland for its new frameless PDG5 module.
Trina Solar is the first manufacturer in Asia to achieve this certification.
TUV Rheinland's testing rated the PDG5 dual glass module to the highest level
of fire resistance.

"This certification is an important step forward in ensuring the highest level
of safety and quality in the solar industry," said Matthias Heinze, VP of
Solar and Fuelcell Technology at TUV Rheinland Group. "Both TUV and Trina
Solar are dedicated to progressing the most advanced and informative standards
in the industry and we look forward to continuing to work together as partners
in the future."

This achievement confirms both Trina Solar's dedication to producing high
quality products and the superior reliability of the Company's frameless PDG5
modules. By replacing the traditional backsheet materials of conventional
solar modules with a second sheet of 2.5 mm heat-strengthened glass, the PDG5
is optimized for reliable performance under stressful environmental conditions
and is among the most durable modules currently on the market. The resulting
module has increased resistance to fire, micro-cracking, potential induced
degradation (PID), module warping, and degradation from UV rays, sand, alkali,
acids and salt mist.

"This new fire safety certificate from the TUV Rheinland Group continues the
Company's commitment to driving higher standards in the PV industry through
close collaboration with our partners," said Zhiguo Zhu, President of Trina
Solar's Module Business Unit. "Together with our rigorous internal quality
processes, undergoing independent third party testing ensures that we are
delivering the highest quality modules and solutions, such as the dual glass
PDG5, to our customers."

PDG5 is ready for shipments worldwide. Those interested in learning more can
