Trina Solar launches Trinasmart solution in North America09. July 2012 | By: Trina Solar Limited
Trina Solar Limited announced the availability of its newest line of high performance solutions – Trinasmart.
Trinasmart combines the Company's award-winning high performance modules with new maximizer and monitoring technology to deliver a comprehensive solution to maximize roof space and overall power output, resulting in better project economics for customers and installers alike.
Trinasmart continues the Company's commitment to provide better solutions for Trina Solar partners. The Trinasmart Maximizer uses built-in technology to accurately and quickly find the exact optimal operating point of each module and prevents shading issues from diminishing the output of other modules with its "Impedance Matching" technology. This innovation results in up to 20 percent higher power output for arrays impacted by shading and up to 8 percent higher output for "perfect" installations. Additionally, the Trinasmart Maximizer allows for varying string lengths and roof angles, enabling installers to maximize roof coverage.
"Trinasmart furthers Trina Solar's commitment to providing an end-to-end solar solution for our customers," said Mark Kingsley, Trina Solar's Chief Commercial Officer. "When our customers choose Trina Solar, they get more than high-performing panels, they get a partner that lowers the overall cost of going solar while increasing their profits."
In addition to increased output, Trinasmart offers better monitoring and safety as well. The Trinasmart solution allows system owners to monitor system performance at the module level, track historical data and compile important system information via computer, mobile phone or tablet PC. Users can receive weekly or monthly reports as well as monitor their system online. Additionally, Trinasmart improves module safety by shutting down modules automatically in case of electrical failure (e.g. flashing arc) and allowing modules to be turned off remotely.
The Company's new line of Trinasmart solar solutions kicks off with a collaborative effort between panel manufacturer Trina Solar and optimizer company Tigo Energy.
"We are proud that our optimizers were chosen to launch Trina Solar's new Trinasmart solution," said Sam Arditi, president, Tigo Energy. "We are excited to help Trina Solar bring smart modules mainstream to improve project value for both end users and installers."
The release of Trinasmart comes on the heels of the Company earning top recognition in three important solar metrics: long-term financial viability, environmental ethics and field performance. PRTM ranked the Company first in its list of sustainably growing solar companies. The Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition ranked Trina Solar first in its annual scorecard of solar panel manufacturing processes, and Trina Solar placed first in the California Energy Commission's PTC/STC ratio ratings.
