Trina Solar Launches New High Efficiency Honey Plus and Honey M Plus Modules

Starts Mass Production of High Efficiency PERC Technology

New Delhi, 29th Jan 2015, Trina Solar Limited (NYSE: TSL) ("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), a global leader in photovoltaic modules, solutions, and services, has announced the launch of two new high-efficiency modules, the Honey Plus (PC05A (II)), a multi-crystalline module and the Honey M Plus (DC05A (II)), a mono-crystalline module, which offer average power outputs of 275W and 285W, respectively. In addition, the Honey Plus (PC05A (II)) offers an average cell efficiency of 18.7% while the Honey M Plus (DC05A (II)) offers an average cell efficiency of 20.4%. The Honey Plus and Honey M Plus modules offer significant upgrades on Trina Solar's previous Honey and Honey M modules.


The improved efficiency delivered by both modules is due to the adoption of a Passivated Emitter and Rear Cell (PERC) technology, which enables greater energy production and better performance, including in low light environments. Equipped with an advanced 5-busbar technology, these two products offer the advantages of lower series resistance, increased Cell-to-Module ratio (CTM) and enhanced reliability.

"We are proud to launch these new, high efficiency modules," said Zhiguo Zhu, Module Business Unit President of Trina Solar. "Our Honey Plus and Honey M Plus modules use our leading PERC technology which recently broke the world record for efficiency. Launching these new products once again demonstrates our efforts to apply and commercialize our advanced cell technology to high efficiency modules. Our outstanding track record in product development and performance is thanks to our professional scientific research, strict quality controls and reliability testing. Our deep commitment to R&D and to delivering high quality products ensures our leading position in a very competitive PV industry. We continue to develop our technology to provide customers with a diversified product portfolio that meets the needs of residential, commercial and utility end-users."

The two modules will be available in select markets in the first half of 2015 with a worldwide launch scheduled in 2016.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
