Trina will deliver TSM-PC14 solar modules starting this month for the large-scale solar plant. Each module has an output of 300 to 310 watts and is International Electrotechnical Committee certified for 1,000 volts. The modules are ideal for solar facilities in areas prone to hot temperatures and dry weather conditions.
"We are pleased to have secured Trina Solar's second agreement this year to supply modules to large utility scale projects in Chile," said Zhiguo Zhu, president of the module business unit at Trina Solar. "We pride ourselves on our ability to establish long-term relationships with our customers, especially in emerging markets such as Chile, where there is currently large demand and we see significant future potential for solar energy."
In April, Trina Solar agreed to supply 36 MW of high-efficiency TSM-PC14 solar modules to another solar project in Chile. That plant is expected to generate 97,000 megawatt hours of electricity each year, and offset 48,600 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually.
