The project is expected to support economic stimulus in a region challenged by semi-desert conditions. The Wuwei municipality is well-suited for solar energy production due to favorable irradiance and the ability to sell off electricity to other regions in addition to supplying local needs.

Trina Solar is one of the few PV manufacturers that have developed a vertically integrated business model, from the production of monocrystalline and multicrystalline silicon ingots, wafers and cells to the assembly of high quality modules.

“We are delighted to have been granted the rights to develop this solar project in Wuwei, Gansu province,” said Jifan Gao, chairman and CEO of Trina Solar. “This project will bring not only job opportunities to the Wuwei region of Gansu, but also environmentally friendly renewable energy which is vital to the overall economic development of the region.”

Trina Solar has a long history of promoting the use of PV energy. As early as 2003, the Company completed the construction of 40 standalone power stations in Tibet, providing much needed electricity to the Chamdo region. The company is also focusing on building a reliable energy infrastructure in underdeveloped regions of China.
