Trina Solar Ltd. has successfully connected two of its new photovoltaic (PV) power plants to the U.K. grid. Trina is the sole investor and project developer for these power plants, which are located in Cornwall and Dorset. Construction on the plants began in December 2013 and together have a total capacity of 23.77 MW.
The plants use Trina PC05A-225Wp modules. They will provide electricity to about 7,477 local homes and are expected to generate 24,63 megawatt hours of electricity each year. This is projected to reduce more than 16,542 tons of carbon emissions.
In February, Trina Solar announced a contract to supply high efficiency PV modules to a project in Amman, Jordan. The contract with Fresh Fruits Company provided that Trina will design and construct a 2 megawatt solar rooftop installation.
This is the first rooftop installation of its kind in Jordan. The installation will use TSM-PC05A Honey 260Wp modules. These were chosen because of their durability and ability to perform in desert-like conditions.
Construction is expected to begin in March 2014 and finish later in the year. It will deliver 3,200 megawatt hours of power each year.
