Trina Solar, a leading integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic products from the production of ingots, wafers and cells to the assembly of PV modules, today announced that its monocrystalline modules recorded one of the highest average outputs in terms of actual electricity generated at Desert Knowledge Australia Solar Centre (“Desert Knowledge”) in Alice Springs, Australia.
Based on independent and ongoing test data collected by Desert Knowledge at its demonstration site from December 1, 2008 to July 31, 2009, the Company’s modules consistently held the top two positions compared to modules from several leading European, Japanese, and American brands under the harsh Australia desert environment. Performance comparison was made based on similar system size operating at full capacity and fixed ground mount installation. Combining high performance with superior value, Trina Solar is dedicated to reducing the cost of solar provided electricity to accelerate the adoption of clean and efficient energy technologies.
Desert Knowledge is a 3.1 million Australian Dollars public initiative that showcases and demonstrates a range of solar power technologies in commercial-scale installations. This is the first organization in Australia to publicly showcase a broad range of large scale solar installations. Approximately fourteen different manufacturers and suppliers were chosen to demonstrate their technologies at Desert Knowledge’s site.
