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, announced today through its subsidiary, Changzhou Trina Solar Energy Co. Ltd., the completion of a 5 MW solar power plant developed by Lanco Infratech Limited (“LITL”), one of the fastest growing business conglomerates in India.

We believe our partnership with Lanco will play a significant role in fulfilling India’s solar potential under the National Solar Mission.”
“We are excited to work with Trina Solar, a recognized global leader in solar PV modules, on this project,” said Mr. Sai Baba, CEO of Lanco Solar. “Leveraging our in-house expertise to establish and grow Lanco as a leader in the solar industry, we hope to strengthen our partnership with Trina Solar to provide sustainable, innovative and cost effective energy solutions.”
