Review

Trina Solar is ranked as one of the top Tier 1 solar panel manufacturers by Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Although, it should be noted that the Tier 1 ranking this is more a measure of a company’s financial stability, which is very important for large utility scale installations requiring long term project viability.

Like many of the large Chinese manufacturers, Trina Solar’s focus is on performance and value of money. Trina does not generally compete in the expensive, premium end of the market with the likes of LG (South Korea) and Sunpower (USA). However, Trina does offer some very high performance products including as the new N-type i-TOPCon panels, and advanced DuoMax Twin bifacial solar panels delivering an impressive 445W.
