CHANGZHOU, China, Feb. 27, 2014

CHANGZHOU, China, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trina Solar Limited (NYSE:
TSL) ("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), a global leader in photovoltaic
modules, solutions and services, announced today that it has signed an EPC
contract with Fresh Fruits Company, a food storage and logistics company in
Amman, Jordan, for a 2 MW rooftop solar power plant on the company's stores
and warehouses. Under the contract, Trina Solar is responsible for the
engineering, procurement, and construction of the project. The project will
use Trina Solar TSM-PC05A Honey 260 Wp, high efficiency modules that adapt
well to dry and high temperature conditions prevalent in the Middle East.

This will be the first mega-scale rooftop solar power project in Jordan. The
construction is scheduled to start in March this year and is expected to be
completed in the third quarter of 2014. The 2 MW rooftop solar power project
is estimated to produce 3,200 MWh every year. The utilization of this solar
power project will prevent emissions of approximately 38,400 tons of CO^2.

"We are delighted to have been awarded this mega-scale project in Jordan,"
said Mr. Jifan Gao, Chairman and CEO of Trina Solar. "Our successful selection
as the EPC provider for this project demonstrates our ability to develop
large-scale projects in the Middle East."

Mr. Gao added, "For oil and natural gas importing countries like Jordan, they
are vulnerable to fluctuations in global oil and natural gas prices. Solar
energy provides Jordan with a viable alternative and we see huge potential for
growth in this market. Following this EPC contract and a previous supply
contract for 1 MW of Trina Honey photovoltaic modules also in Jordan, we will
continue to actively pursue new opportunities in this emerging market."

"The rooftop solar power project will be of great benefit to our business,"
commented Mr. Omar Hashlmon, General Manager of Fresh Fruits Company. "Our
business of operating cold stores is an energy intensive operation. This
project will significantly contribute to a reduction in our annual electricity
expenditure. It will also be a sound investment for our company due to the
expected quick recovery of the initial investment thanks to favorable
renewable energy policies enacted by the local government."

Mr. Omar Hashlmon added, "We received more than 20 offers from both local and
international companies. Trina Solar stood out due its experienced team
consisting of strong local technical professionals in the Middle East and its
commitment to excel in project development in the region. Trina Solar's
support will enable us to gain necessary approvals from the local government.
We believe Trina Solar is the most reliable partner for this, the largest
solar project in Jordan."
