Trina Solar Launches New High Efficiency Honey Plus and Honey M Plus Modules
Starts Mass Production of High Efficiency PERC Technology
CHANGZHOU, China, -- Trina Solar Limited (NYSE: TSL) ("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), a global leader in photovoltaic modules, solutions, and services, today 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.
