CHANGZHOU, China, Jan. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Trina Solar Limited (TSL) ("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), a leading vertically-integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) products, announced the offering of a three-pronged service solution featuring complimentary design services, newly available high performance 'Honey' modules and the rapid install Trinamount racking system.
Starting today, installers, developers and other customers using Trina Solar modules can benefit from a complimentary design service that delivers preliminary system layouts and performance estimates for large rooftop installations. Upon submitting a short site survey form, Trina Solar will craft custom-tailored PV installation plans.
This new design service comes online as Trina Solar also announces the availability of its high performance 60-cell, up to 260 Watt Honey module series for North America. The new Honey cell is produced using cutting edge process tools supplied by North American vendors. The cells feature a number of advancements including greater surface area and more efficient capture of sunlight, resulting in more power per area. Laboratory tests, confirmed by TUV Rheinland in September 2011, demonstrated that a 60 Honey cell module set a world record for multicrystalline module power by reaching a 274 Watt peak.
Compared to industry standard 230 Watt modules, a typical flat rooftop system using comparably sized 260 Wp Honey modules could produce over 18 percent more electricity per year from the same roof area. By combining high performing Honey modules with the fast mounting Trinamount system, customers can install Trinamount Honey systems up to 4.5 times faster while shaving installation costs by up to 10 percent.
"Honey panels, plus Trinamount, plus design services move us toward a 'total solution' to our partners and end users," said Mark Kingsley, Chief Commercial Officer of Trina Solar. "Trina's ongoing commitment to delivering better panels and more robust services to our customers keeps us ahead of the curve in the dynamic global PV market."
Honey cell technology is the latest breakthrough in Trina Solar's commitment to better service delivery. In June 2011, Trina Solar broke ground with an industry-leading 25-year linear power warranty, a 10-year product warranty and a guaranteed positive power tolerance of 0/+3%. Earlier last year, Trina Solar unveiled its Trinamount solution, a racking and grounding solution that help solar installers increase profits through faster and easier installations.
These improvements continue to add to Trina Solar's recognized field performance and environmental leadership. Since 2008, Trina Solar modules have consistently ranked among the best performing modules by third-party validators including TUV Rheinland, DKA Australia and Photon. Trina Solar's sustainable manufacturing processes and carbon reduction programs are ISO certified and have been recognized as an industry model. These sustainable processes have resulted in a nearly 60 percent reduction in energy and water usage per megawatt produced.
