In April, Trina Solar had initiated a proposal to develop 300-megawatt distributed generation (DG) solar power and related projects at Hefei in Anhui Province of China.

A strategic cooperation framework agreement with the administrative committee of the Hefei Xinzhan General Pilot Zone was signed for the project.

According to the proposal, a 30-megawatt commercial rooftop project will be developed in the first phase. And Trina had planned to begin the first-phase installation in Q2, 2015.

It will be the largest single-unit commercial rooftop project in China when completed, the company reported in a statement.

“China’s ongoing efforts to promote clean energy with supportive policies and reinforcement of the DG solar power projects development have resulted in increasing awareness and recognition in the market for DG solar power projects. We are ready to work for DG solar power development in China,” Jifan Gao, the chairman and CEO of Trina Solar, said.
