A new frontier

Trina Solar was founded in 1997 by Gao Jifan. As a solar pioneer, Trina Solar helped change this solar industry, rapidly growing from one of the first PV enterprises in China to become a world leader in solar technology and manufacture. 

Trina Solar reached a milestone in 2006 when it was first listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

World-record breakers

In 2014, Trina Solar realized the milestone of shipping over 1GW in one quarter. We also broke the solar cell efficiency world record 7 times that year. To date, the State Key Laboratory of PV Science and Technology has broken 16 world records on solar cell efficiency and module power.

The unmatched level of innovation and technological capabilities of Trina Solar have allowed us to become global leaders by setting industry benchmarks for both quality and efficiency.
