Trina Solar Limited (NYSE: TSL), a global photovoltaic (“PV”) module maker and provider of solar solutions and services, today announced the grid connection of its 90 MW solar power plant located in Toksun, Xinjiang province, China.

Approximately 300,000 of Trina Solar’s high efficiency modules with outputs ranging from 295 Wp to 310 Wp were installed in the 90 MW solar power plant in Xinjiang province. The solar power plant will be able to generate up to 118 million kWh of electricity per year, mitigating 108,300 tons of carbon dioxide emissions. Once operational, the 90 MW solar power project in Toksun is expected to be one of the largest single unit solar power plants in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. The power plant has been granted a 20-year subsidy of 0.95 RMB/KWh.

“The successful grid connection of this large-scale solar power project demonstrates the seamless execution of the Trina Solar team through all phases of project development. We feel very proud that this power plant will generate both job opportunities and clean, renewable energy in Toksun region,” said Mr. Jifan Gao, Chairman and CEO of Trina Solar. “We are also delighted to add one more large solar power project to our existing project portfolio which we believe will bring a stable return for years to come. With the knowledge gained through developing, designing, building and operating large utility-scale solar projects, we are strengthening our capabilities to win more opportunities and bring more solar power projects online in 2015.”
