Trina Solar announced that its TSM-PE05A and TS-PE14A polycrystalline modules ("the Modules") have received UL1500V certification from Underwriters Laboratories (UL), a global independent safety science company.
The UL1500V award certifies that the Modules are allowed to be used in PV systems with a maximum system voltage of 1500V, significantly higher than the existing 1000V of most modules on the market. Furthermore, the 1500V certification demonstrates that the Modules produced by Trina Solar meet higher technical standards and quality requirements. The higher system voltage modules allow our customers to design their PV systems with longer string length. It significantly reduces the number of component in the balance of the system (BOS), and reduces the cost per unit of power (US$/W) of BOS. It also boosts the system performance by reducing the system loses.
Zhiguo Zhu, COO and President of Module Business Unit of Trina Solar, commented: "We are pleased to receive the UL1500V certification for two of our modules. Being among the first PV manufacturer to have UL1500V-certified PV modules demonstrates our leading position in technology advancements and cutting-edge manufacturing capabilities. We believe that the higher voltage products allow us to deliver more value to our customers by providing better performance products and system cost savings. We remain committed to delivering more breakthroughs and innovations in the PV sector."
