Trina Solar Limited (Trina Solar or the Company), a leading integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) products, announced it has obtained approval from the Gansu Provincial Development and Reform Commission to develop a 50 MW grid-connected solar renewable power plant project in Wuwei, Gansu. The project is expected to support economic stimulus in a region challenged by semi-desert conditions. The Wuwei municipality is well-suited for solar energy production due to favorable irradiance and the ability to sell off electricity to other regions in addition to supplying local needs.

"We are delighted to have been granted the rights to develop this solar project in Wuwei, Gansu province," said Mr. Jifan Gao, Chairman and CEO of Trina Solar. "This project will bring not only job opportunities to the Wuwei region of Gansu, but also environmentally friendly renewable energy which is vital to the overall economic development of the region."

Trina Solar has a long history of promoting the use of PV energy. As early as 2003, the Company completed the construction of 40 standalone power stations in Tibet, providing much needed electricity to the Chamdo region. The central and western regions will be the focus of China's economic and social development in the coming decade. Trina Solar is dedicated to building a reliable energy infrastructure in underdeveloped regions of China.
