June 25, 2010

CHANGZHOU, China, June 25 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Trina Solar Limited
(NYSE: TSL) (“Trina Solar” or the “Company”), a leading integrated
manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) products from the production of ingots,
wafers and cells to the assembly of PV modules, today announced that it is
expected to supply PV modules to the University of Queensland (“UQ”) St Lucia
campus in Brisbane, Australia, to be used for a 1.2 MW solar system which will
be installed on the rooftops of four university buildings.

The solar system will be developed by Ingenero, Australia’s leading
renewable energy company specializing in solar power. The large-scale
installation will provide UQ with a significant source of clean green energy
and is expected to be a resource for students and staff, who will study the
array’s performance and collaborate with Trina Solar as part of the
University’s drive to help develop next-generation solar technologies. Trina
Solar
also expects to work together with UQ on several cutting edge solar
technology research projects going forward.

The Queensland Government is contributing a grant of AUD1.5 million
towards the AUD7.75 million project, which will feature the 1.2 MW solar PV
installation, and will be capable of producing 1,750 MWh of electricity a year.

“The Australian solar market has enormous potential and Trina Solar is
pleased to be selected by The University of Queensland to be a partner in this
significant project installation,” said Ku Jun Heong, Director of Sales and
Marketing Asia Pacific. “We are proud to be supplying modules to the largest
and most powerful rooftop solar arrays in Australia and we believe this marks
the beginning of a promising future for large-scale solar energy in
Australia.”

“The UQ solar power installation represents the leading edge of commercial
and industrial scale solar energy in Australia. The University will
substantially reduce its carbon footprint and provide an excellent learning
facility for the future leaders in the renewable energy industry,” said
Ingenero CEO Steve McRae.

Professor Paul Meredith, who leads the research project at the University
of Queensland
said: “Not only is this array a significant piece of energy
infrastructure for UQ, but it also represents a globally leading research and
teaching facility. Our objective is to integrate the array into everyday
business across UQ and also provide the community, industry and government
with vital information on how to deploy and optimize solar energy systems at
this scale. We are looking forward to building productive and expansive
research partnerships with Ingenero and Trina Solar. “
