CHANGZHOU, China, April 8, 2014

CHANGZHOU, China, April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trina Solar Limited (NYSE:
TSL) ("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), a global leader in photovoltaic (PV)
modules, solutions and services, today announced that its State Key Laboratory
of PV Science and Technology has developed a new high-efficiency Honey Ultra
solar module.

Trina Solar's Honey Ultra monocrystalline silicon module reached a new record
of 326.3W, which has been independently certified by TUV Rheinland, a leading
authoritative certification institution. This result sets a new world record
for p-type monocrystalline silicon modules. The monocrystalline silicon module
is composed of 60 high-efficiency Honey Ultra monocrystalline silicon cells of
156mm x 156mm, fabricated with a technology developed by Trina Solar and
currently in pilot production.

Honey Ultra marks the second generation of Trina Solar's Honey module
technology and this new high-efficiency record significantly extends the
previous milestone of 284.7W attained by Trina Solar's first generation of
Honey modules.

The module integrates core technologies including back surface passivation
technology and low-resistance connection technology, each of which have been
researched and developed by Trina Solar.

"As an advanced research and development facility, our State Key Lab of PV
Science and Technology enables us to execute on our commitment to the
commercialization of new high-efficiency solar cells and highly reliable
modules," said Dr. Zhiqiang Feng, Vice President of Trina Solar and Director
of the State Key Lab of PV Science and Technology. "In recent years the
Company has successfully researched and developed new intellectual properties
in the form of a series of innovative technologies and high quality products,
and has successfully maintained its leading position in patent applications
and grants. As a result, Trina Solar remains at the forefront of technological
innovations in the solar industry."

This new Honey Ultra module marks a key milestone for Trina Solar's State Key
Laboratory of PV Science and Technology since its accreditation in November
2013 and follows the Company's development of a new Interdigitated Back
Contact ("IBC") cell capable of delivering an industry-leading efficiency of
24.4%.

This demonstrates Trina Solar's world-class monocrystalline silicon module and
that the technology behind these high-efficiency modules is suitable for rapid
roll-out to large-scale production.
