Trina Solar named Overall Highest Achiever by RETC for fourth time

Trina Solar has again been recognized as the Overall Highest Achiever for the outstanding performance of its Vertex N 700W series modules in the RETC 2023 PV Module Index Report, published recently. This is the fourth time Trina Solar has been honored with the accolade, exemplifying its leadership in the PV industry.

The annual report evaluates products in terms of quality, performance, and reliability, providing a reference for stakeholders about products based on comparative test results.

In the reliability test, a company is said to have attained High Achievement if the power degradation of its product is less than -2%. Trina Solar was given High Achievement in Reliability with respect to all test sequences: DH2000, PID, SDML, and TC 600. Performance in DH2000 was particularly notable, with Vertex N 700W series modules showing degradation of as low as -0.87% and -0.96%.

There is no doubt that modules with higher energy yield can give investors and end users the greatest level of confidence. Trina Solar was accorded High Achievement in Performance with outstanding performance in PID and LeTID. RETC’s PID test is twice as rigorous as that of IEC. Vertex N 700W series modules have degradation of just -0.59% and -0.53% after the PID test, way better than other testing modules, and only show degradation of just -0.09% and -0.17% after the RETC LeTID test. 

In the quality test, Trina Solar Vertex N 700W series modules fully passed the thresher test and performed very well. As a leader in the PV industry, Trina Solar conducts rigorous quality control from the design stage and is devoted to providing high-quality products to global customers.

Being named Overall Highest Achiever underlines Trina Solar’s consistent efforts in keeping its technology and product values to the highest standard. Trina Solar has become a greatly trusted supplier to customers worldwide, with recognition from international institutions, including being named Top Performer for nine consecutive years by PVEL, given the highest AAA ranking five years in a row in the PV ModuleTech Bankability report by PV Tech, being included on the Tier 1 PV Module Maker List numerous times by BNEF and TÜV Rheinland certifying the safe use of its products in marine settings, a first in the industry.
