CHANGZHOU, China, Aug. 12, 2014

CHANGZHOU, China, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trina Solar Limited (NYSE:
TSL) ("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), a global leader in photovoltaic ("PV")
modules, solutions, and services, today announced the acquisition of a 49.9 MW
utility-scale ground-mounted power project in the UK from Good Energy Group
PLC ("Good Energy").

The solar PV power plant received planning consent in January 2014 and will
utilize Trina Solar's high quality PV modules. Construction will start in the
third quarter of 2014 and the site is expected to be connected to the national
grid before the end of the first quarter of 2015. If connection occurs prior
to the end of March 2015 it will be entitled to receive 1.4 Renewables
Obligation Certificates (ROCs) per megawatt-hour (MWh). Once operational, the
project is expected to supply clean energy to more than 14,000 UK homes per
year.

"This new project represents a new step forward for Trina Solar in the UK
following the completion and grid-connection of our first two projects that
totaled an installed capacity of 23.8 MWp. This new project will further
strengthen our leading market position in the UK, as well as in Europe," said
Mr. Jifan Gao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Trina Solar. "As a
mature and fast growing PV market, the UK presents opportunities for Trina to
continue to invest in the downstream business. With a diversified downstream
pipeline in China, Europe, Japan and Middle East, we are well positioned to
realize our goal of 400 MW to 500 MW project developments this year."
