Trina Solar Australia and Infinity Solar to roll out pivotal solar leasing scheme in Australia


Sydney, Australia, 10 October 2013 --- Trina Solar Limited (NYSE: TSL), a leading integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) solutions, is pleased to announce that its solar leasing company Lightleasing Pty Ltd has signed an seminal agreement with leading national solar company Infinity Solar to roll out its new leasing offer across Australia in Q4 2013.

Chris Thomson, Infinity Group Director, said: “One hurdle to installing solar is the up-front cost, which has led to people opting for low-cost operators that offer inferior equipment and installation.This new scheme will give more customers access to a high quality PV system. With a really low interest rate, in most cases, the energy savings generated by the solar system will dramatically reduce power bills, and cover the monthly loan repayment so customers are expected to save money from day one.”

John Susa of Trina Solar Australia says:“We are delighted to launch this pioneering solution to the Australian market and have great confidence in Infinity Solar rolling out a game-changing product offer across all States and Territories here in Australia. This truly is a new pathway for enabling solar in this country”.

Under the Lightleasing scheme, Infinity Solar allows consumers and businesses alike to reap the benefits of solar power without the upfront cost or risk. Customers enjoy a fully tailored solar power system with a performance guarantee – if the system underperforms the customer will be compensated. With flexible lease terms, maintenance and insurance included, solar leasing is a simple and effective way for customers to save money whilst generating their own clean, sustainable energy.
