Trina Solar Awarded “2024 Top Performer” Status for 10th Consecutive Year
The Vertex N modules among the highly recognized products in this industry-leading scorecard

Kiwa PV Evolution Labs (Kiwa PVEL), a third-party reliability testing laboratory, has again recognized Trina Solar as a “Top Performer” in nearly every category among global PV module manufacturers in its 2024 PV Module Reliability Scorecard. Trina Solar received recognition for the outstanding performance of its Vertex N modules, including the Vertex N 720W series modules. This marks the 10th consecutive year that Trina Solar modules have won the coveted “Top Performer” designation mark. Trina Solar remains one of two leaders for successive years, earning this accolade more than any other PV module manufacturer.

Kiwa PVEL publishes the PV Module Reliability Scorecard annually, using meticulous and diligent standards to provide extensive data and research for the PV module industry. The in-depth testing goes beyond the lab to help buyers mitigate risk and identify manufacturers with improved system performance. Trina Solar’s testing modules, including p-type and n-type modules, performed exceptionally well in Kiwa PVEL’s Production Qualification Program (PQP), highlighting the company’s commitment to manufacturing high-quality and highly reliable PV modules. These results enable data-driven solar procurement and investments for developers, financiers, and asset owners.

The Vertex N 720W series module, a standout in Trina Solar’s Vertex family, was a Top Performer in all seven tests—only three other models out of the 380 modules tested share this distinction. This module combines TOPCon Advanced technology and 210mm technology, offering customers a unique blend of higher power output, higher efficiency, higher bifaciality, and lower degradation. The module’s widespread compatibility with trackers provides optimum flexibility in utility-scale projects, even in the most complex terrains. 

Trina Solar’s 210mm n-type scenario-based solutions, including Vertex N 720W series modules, Vertex N 625W series modules, and Vertex S+ 455W modules, are tailored to operate in a wide range of settings with lower BOS costs and LCOE to maximize customer value.

“Trina Solar is extremely proud of earning a record 10th consecutive ‘Top Performer’ award from Kiwa PVEL,” said Steven Zhu, president of Trina Solar US. “The recognition is a testament to our commitment to supplying our customers with the highest quality and best-performing PV modules for more solar project value.”

“Congratulations to Trina Solar for achieving ‘Top Performer’ recognition in every test category,” said Tristan Erion-Lorico, VP of sales and marketing at Kiwa PVEL. “In particular, we applaud the outstanding performance of Trina’s Vertex N module that was a Top Performer in all seven tests; that’s a significantly rare and noteworthy feat.”
