Trina Solar US: PV Module Bankability Across the Board

On the heels of another incredibly strong year and following a successful 2021, Trina Solar was again recognized as fully bankable in the 2022 PV Module and Inverter Bankability report issued by BloombergNEF (BNEF). 

BNEF used three key indicators in its bankability determination:

  1. BNEF Bankability Survey Results - Trina Solar stands alone as the only module manufacturer the BNEF survey rated as bankable for seven consecutive years by 100% of the industry respondents participating.

  2. PVEL Module Scorecard - Trina Solar’s eighth consecutive listing as a Top Performer in the annual PVEL Module Scorecard, one of only two module manufacturers to achieve this feat. 

  3. Shipment & Capacity - Trina Solar crossed a significant milestone in 2022 by passing over 100GW+ PV modules shipped globally during its 25-year history. The company’s module production capacity is on track to reach 65GW+ and 50GW+ cell production capacity in 2022.


What the BNEF Bankability Report Covers


The BloombergNEF PV Module and Inverter Bankability report has a rating process that considers the following: 


  • Bankability survey

  • Capacity installed in the field

  • Financial stability

  • Independent field testing

  • Supply Chain

  • Quality Assurance (Factory Audit)


And some of the factors that play a role in influencing the level of bankability:


  • Brand awareness

  • Customer Complaint and Warranty

  • After-sales service quality

  • Stable and competitive price

  • Contract fulfillment performance

  • Outstanding module performance (reliability, structural integrity, handling, and installation)


Trina succeeds in these factors by delivering reliable, high-quality, and comprehensive solutions at every level.
