Trina Solar is pleased to announce that, to date, it has successfully connected to the grid two thirds of a 300MW ground-mounted solar project in Yunan, China ( the "Project").

As previously announced, through an open bidding process, Trina Solar acquired a 90% stake in Yunnan Metallurgical New Energy Co., Ltd, which has a 300MW project under development in Southern Yunnan province. Once fully operational, the project will become the largest single utility-scale solar power plant in Yunnan and one of the largest in China.

Trina Solar commenced the construction phase of the Project in the fourth quarter of 2014 with the deployment of its self-branded solar PV modules to the barren hills of Jianshui County. After having connected 70MW of modules to the grid in the second quarter of this year, the Company surpassed the 200MW milestone by the end of the third quarter with additional connection of 133MW.

The electricity generated from the project is being provided to a local industrial park and to farms located in the surrounding area. The Project is eligible for a 20-year benchmark on-grid tariff of 0.95 RMB/KWh based on the present feed-in-tariff program in China.

"Despite the fact that our Yunnan project is located in a topographically challenging area, we are extremely pleased to announce that we are proceeding on schedule," said Qi Lin, Vice President and President of PV Systems Business Unit of Trina Solar.

"This project demonstrates our strong capabilities of executing our downstream strategy as we continue to utilize our competitive advantages in module manufacturing to develop high-quality and efficient solar farms in select locations around the world. China has raised its solar installation target for 2015 by 5.3 GW to 23.1 GW, which underscores the determination of the central government to bolster the development of solar energy. With this project and others, we are confident that we are on the right track to meet our 2015 downstream guidance."
