25-year at 80% output
Whether you’re comparing price or quality, Trina Solar is one of the most competitive manufacturers of PV modules in the world. That’s because their vertically integrated structure allows them to have a tight grip on quality control from the beginning of the manufacturing process AND maintain low price structures. They begin with the raw material of Sillicon to produce crystalline ingots, wafers and then cells, and finish off with the assembly of photovoltaic modules.
Their rigorous testing and quality control on their solar panels are particularly noteworthy. Trina Solar performs a variety of tests including a mechanical loading test which checks on modules’ resistance in harsh wind, snow, and static loads such as ice. Their Resilience Test simulates events of heavy impact, while their infra red test assesses a module’s behavior with heavy humidity, UV exposure, or harsh weather conditions like heat or hale. And, finally, their proprietary High Accelerated Stress Test or Hastest reveals to them how solar panels and their components change over time.
Trina Solar was established in 1997 in China and has been listed on the stock exchange since 2006. The name "Trina" is a transliteration of the original Chinese name TianHe. Roughly translated, it means "to combine harmoniously with the sky".
