CHANGZHOU, China, March 20 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ — Trina Solar Limited (TSL; “Trina Solar” or the “Company”), a leading integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic products from the production of ingots, wafers and cells to the assembly of PV modules, today announced the commemoration and completion of the largest roof mounted solar array in the United States. Trina Solar’s Director of Sales & Marketing for North America, Jim Day, joined project partners and invited guests as Governor Jon Corzine of New Jersey and other officials dedicated the completion on March 5, 2009.

The Atlantic City Convention Center (“ACCC”) project is North America’s largest single roof-mounted solar array and consists of more than 13,400 modules. The project, which provides approximately 2.4 MW at peak capacity, was completed in December, 2008, and can power up to 280 homes and effectively curtail the release of 2,350 tons of carbon dioxide every year. The panels will produce about one-fourth of the building’s energy and will provide the ACCC with energy savings of approximately $4.4 million over 20 years.

“We are very delighted by the completion of this significant project, which helps to bring clean, green solar energy solutions to Atlantic City,” stated Jifan Gao, Trina Solar’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We are proud that Trina Solar’s modules were selected for this landmark achievement. The success of this project demonstrates our capacity to deliver large scale commercial solar solutions to market as we continue to broaden our distribution networks and project partnership agreements in the U.S.”
