Trina Solar in the UK

Trina Solar has built a few PV projects in the UK in order to strengthen its presence on the market:

  • Trehawke, UK: 10.6 MW PV Plant connected to the national grid.

  • Norfolk, UK: 49.9 MW solar farm in construction, to be completed in 2015.

  • Bradford Cathedral, West Yorkshire, UK: 9.9 Kw PV installation, making it the first cathedral in the world to generate its own solar energy.

Solar Panels Developed by Trina Solar

Both monocrystalline and polycrystalline technologies are used to produce Trina Solar panels. Trina Solar strives to produce the best panels. On two occasions, their solar PV’s were awarded 2nd best in the world in terms of power output.

Features and EfficiencyTrina Solar Example

Trina Solar panels deliver efficiencies of up to 16.8%. At Trina Solar, panels are tested for efficiency under high stress (called HASTEST). This test is performed to see the changes in material and components over time and resilience under high impact. During the production process, panels are coated to reduce micro-cracking, module warping, UV ageing, and corrosion from sand, acid and salt mist.

Another feature for Trina Solar panels is the excellent low light performance on cloudy days, mornings, and evenings; and under high humidity, UV exposure, heat, and hail.

The glass used to cover the panels is industry's best material. It is able to withstand 3600 Pa wind load as well as 5400 Pa snow load. This is equivalent to a weight of 550 kg/m2.

Warranty

Material and workmanship warranty stands at 10 years, which is common across the industry. For the performance warranty, Trina Solar has 2 choices related to the type of solar panels they produce:

      • monocrystalline or

      • polycrystalline.   Trina Solar 222

Monocrystalline panels carry minimum 96.5% of nameplate power in the first year of operation. For following years, the output will drop with maximum 0.68% each year, ending at 80.18% in year 25.

For example, if you purchase QuadMax 200 panels you can expect 193W in the first year of operations:

200 W x 96.5% = 193 W

When your panel is in its 25th year of operations, you can expect it to generate 160.3 W:

Polycrystalline panels warrant 97.5% of the nameplate output in year 1. Every additional year of operations will bring a maximum 0.7% decrease in performance. By year 25th, the panels will generate minimum 80.7% of the initial power output.

For example, if you purchase Trina Honey 250 you can expect 243.7 W in the first year of operations:

250 W x 97.5% = 243.7 W

When your panel is in its 25th year of operations, you can expect it to generate 201 W.
