Trina Solar Announces Concurrent Offerings of $120 million of Senior

Convertible Notes and Borrowed American Depositary Shares

CHANGZHOU, China, July 16, 2008 — Trina Solar Limited (“Trina Solar” or the “Company”), a leading integrated manufacturer of photovoltaic products from the production of ingots, wafers and cells to the assembly of PV modules, founded in 1997, today announced it intends to offer, subject to market and other conditions, $120 million aggregate principal amount of senior convertible notes due 2013 and American depositary shares (“ADSs”), which are being borrowed by the joint bookrunners of the notes offering or their affiliates (“ADS Borrowers”) pursuant to ADS lending agreements with Trina Solar. Trina Solar intends to grant to the underwriters of the notes offering an option to purchase up to an additional $18 million aggregate principal amount of notes to cover over-allotments.

The notes will pay interest semi-annually and mature in July 2013. The notes will be convertible into ADSs at a rate that is subject to adjustment under certain circumstances.

Holders of the notes may require Trina Solar to repurchase all or a portion of the notes in 2011. Holders of the notes may also require Trina Solar to repurchase all or a portion of the notes upon certain fundamental changes.

Trina Solar intends to use the net proceeds of the notes offering for the expansion of manufacturing lines for the production of silicon ingots, wafers, solar cells and solar modules, the purchase of raw materials, research and development and other general corporate purposes.

In connection with the notes offering, Trina Solar will enter into ADS lending agreements with the ADS Borrowers, pursuant to which Trina Solar will lend ADSs to the ADS Borrowers. Concurrently with the notes offering, the ADS Borrowers will sell the borrowed ADSs pursuant to a separate prospectus supplement. The sale of the borrowed ADSs is intended to facilitate privately negotiated transactions or short sales by which investors in the notes will hedge their investment in the notes. The ADS Borrowers will be required to return the borrowed ADSs pursuant to the ADS lending agreements by the scheduled maturity date of the notes in July 2013. The ADS Borrowers will receive all of the proceeds from the sale of the borrowed ADSs. Trina Solar will not receive any proceeds from the offering of the borrowed ADSs, but will receive a nominal lending fee from the ADS Borrowers.
