SAN JOSE, Calif., July 19,2013 /PRNewswire/ --Trina Solar Limited (TSL), a
global leader in photovoltaic modules, solutions and services, announced today
that, based on strong demand at Intersolar North America 2013, it will host a
series of seminars across the United States to educate installers about its
new Trinasmart solar module. Trinasmart features enhanced capabilities that
deliver increased energy harvest, longer strings, enhanced safety and advanced
operations and maintenance capabilities. Installers can sign up for the
trainings at:

"Our Trinasmart modules are designed to lower the overall cost of solar," said
Mark Mendenhall, President of Trina North America. "As a part of our
commitment to providing a complete solar solution to our customers, we will
join with our solar partners to host a series of installer seminars on the
benefits of Trinasmart. This is smarter energy, together."

The seminars will focus on how to design systems with Trinasmart. The modules
feature Smart Curve, which enables the installation of up to 30 percent longer
strings than with a traditional module. This reduces the number of balance of
systems components required per array, while also making installation faster
and easier.

Trinasmart accomplishes this by reducing maximum output voltage to 32.5V (on
the 60-cell module) compared to 38.4V for a traditional module. The maximum
voltage with Smart Curve is constant regardless of the temperature.This
technology solution is compliant with all international safety regulations.
Smart Curve reduces the BOS costs by about five cents per Wp. Smart Curve is
TUV and CSA certified.

With Trinasmart, designers can use parts of the roof that are prone to shading
without causing the entire system to lose power. Traditional modules would
decrease the energy output in the string, but not Trinasmart, which
automatically takes care of this. Overall, system output in case of shading
and differing module performance within one string is improved by up to 20
percent. System performance can be monitored and controlled in real time
through a web-based Trinasmart platform,, with a smart
mobile device or a PC. Trinasmart utilizes technology by Tigo Energy – a
Silicon Valley, California-based company.
