Trina Solar awarded ‘2023 Top Performer’ by PVEL, with Vertex N reliability highly recognised
This is the ninth year in a row that Trina Solar has been recognised as a Top Performer by PVEL

Trina Solar Co., Ltd. (“Trina Solar” or the “company”), a global leader in smart solar energy solutions for a net-zero future, has once again been recognised as a Top Performer among global PV module manufacturers. In the 2023 PV Module Reliability Scorecard published by PV Evolution Labs (PVEL), the world-renowned third-party reliability testing laboratory, the company received recognition for the outstanding performance of its Vertex N modules, especially the Vertex N 605W module. It is the ninth year in a row that Trina Solar has won this accolade, a feat unparalleled by any other company.

Using rigorous parameters, PVEL publishes the PV Module Reliability Scorecard every year, providing abundant data and research to the industry that helps guide its development, a role appreciated by all stakeholders.

All Trina Solar’s testing modules, including p-type modules as well as n-type, performed exceptionally well in tests such as on LID+LETID and mechanical stress sequence. Trina Solar’s Vertex N 605W module, which combines i-TOPConAdvanced technology and 210mm technology, performed best in DH and PID tests. This module is highly compatible with trackers, offering optimum flexibility in utility-scale projects in the most complex of terrains and maximising customer value with lower LCOE.

At the SNEC PV Power Expo in Shanghai in May, Kevin Gibson, managing director of PVEL, presented the Top Performer award to Trina Solar.

He congratulated the company on the outstanding performance of its Vertex modules, especially the Vertex N 605W, and on its appearing on the Top Performer list for the ninth year in a row. Trina Solar was recognised as a Top Performer in almost every category in which its modules were tested.

The accolade reflects not only the quality of its modules but also the trust that customers worldwide have in them. Trina Solar has been recognised elsewhere for its excellent product performance, technological innovation and high bankability, given a 100% bankability rating seven years in a row by BNEF, and has been rated AAA, the highest rating, in the Module Tech Bankability Ratings report by PV-Tech.
