The company's Tallmax modules have been deployed for the grid parity project possessed by Margherita and situated in the San Severo location of Foggia district.

" In addition to the contribution in terms of lowering carbon emissions, I really hope that this [project] can additionally be a reward for all operators in the market to purchase grid parity, which in Italy still appears to be slow-moving to remove," claimed Luca Carosielli, project engineer as well as investor of Margherita.

With as much as 395W outcome power, the Tallmax module employed in the project becomes part of Trina Solar's renewed product portfolio. According to Trina, the 144 half-cut monocrystalline PERC cells used in the Tallmax produce higher return, while the cell string layout can dramatically decrease power loss brought on by inter-row shading. The multi-busbar cell style can additionally lower module functioning temperature, enhancing performance and output.

Gonzalo de la Viña, head of module business Europe at Trina Solar, claimed the firm is proud to aid bring LCOE down even more with its PV modules.

" Grid parity has been the holy grail of the PV industry for many years currently," he said. "We are delighted to see that finally the requirements for taking subsidy-free projects from the principle stage to truth exist. PV has actually come a long way and is really cost-competitive nowadays."

The Margherita offer complies with Trina Solar's sale previously this month of around 970MW of solar PV projects to property administration car Matrix Renewables. The projects, which are either operational, incomplete or in late-stage growth, lie in Spain, Chile, Colombia and Mexico.
