About Trina Solar : General
Trina Solar has proven itself as one of the best companies producing solar panels today. They have a very similar approach to quality and commitment as Jinko Solar who are their one of their main rivals. Trina has been in the solar business for nearly 20 years and has an excellent reputation in the Australian market. Since 2011, Trina has stepped up further and having set 15 records for solar cell and module power efficiency. The Trina Honey panel has gained significant market share in Australia. Recently, Trina has been specified in many large commercial projects in Australia.
Trina Solar Panels; Build Quality
The Trina Honey series is the type of panel we use, and the TSM-PD05 270-watt solar panel is the one we have the most experience. To the eye, these panels are very well constructed and their quality of manufacture is evident. The frame is rigid and firm. There is precision in the construction of the panel that we have come to expect from one of the World’s top panel producers.
Warranty and Service
Trina warranty is very similar to most other panels at this time; 10 years product warranty and a 25 year at 80% of rated output, performance guarantee. At this time (2017), we have not had any warranty or performance issues with Trina panels and being such a well-established company, we wouldn’t expect to have any difficulty in getting support if it was required. Trina has the central office in Sydney, but their warranty can be accessed through their distribution network, that is across Australia.
Warranty and Service
In short, we like Trina panels very much and they are one of only a handful of products that we will offer to our clients. They are an excellent mid-priced option, and we thoroughly recommend them, and certainly, agree with other very favorable Trina Solar panel reviews we have seen.
