Trina Solar modules eligible for Calls for Tenders in France

Products meet CRE3, CRE4, AOS and self-consumption requirements

Zurich, 16 February 2017 - Trina Solar Limited (NYSE: TSL) ("Trina Solar" or the "company"), a global leader in photovoltaic ("PV") modules, solutions, and services, today announced that its PV modules, after an official audit, were in conformity with the regulation for CRE3, CRE4, Simplified Tenders (AOS) and self-consumption calls for tender in France. This will allow the company’s customers and partners to specify those low carbon footprint modules in their projects, in line with national climate change objectives.

The French Energy Regulation Commission (CRE) fixes this regulatory framework, and monitors the market players’ adherence. The recent validation will enable French PV industry professionals to build power plants with Trina Solar modules, which combine high quality, performance and a low carbon footprint.

Trina Solar will present its latest technological innovations and especially its low carbon footprint modules to the French PV market at the BePOSITIVE exhibition in Lyon next March, 8th to 10th, welcoming visitors at booth 6F-18.

Gonzalo de la Viña, Head of Europe for Trina Solar’s module business, explains: "The validation attests for our customers, financial partners, and for all players in the French market that our products match all criteria of the CRE. This new offer from Trina Solar is a strong sign to our French partners. In response to their requests, we are now able to provide solar PV modules with a very low carbon impact. This confirms our commitment to meet the regulatory framework in each market we address. As a company, Trina Solar reassures its customers thanks to its top-in-class bankability and the long-term durability of its products.”

De la Viña continued, ”As Trina Solar has always put the fight against climate change at the heart of its R&D and innovation strategies, this validation is an extremely positive sign. Low carbon emissions are an important aspect that CRE emphasizes. We have set up a very strong policy within our company regarding a constant carbon footprint reduction. Our module production shows lower and lower carbon emissions, and this is why our products are a great choice for the most demanding PV professionals."
