Southern California Edison (SCE) has tapped Trina Solar for 45MW photovoltaic (PV) modules. Initial shipments will commence in May 2010. Under the terms of the agreement, Trina Solar is expected to supply SCE with 45 MW of photovoltaic modules at agreed prices with deliveries taking place between Q2 10 and Q1 11. The modules are expected to be used in SCE's large solar PV installation programme, otherwise known as the SCE Solar PV Program.

SCE, authorised by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), plans to cover up to 6.5 crore (65 million) square feet of unused Southern California commercial rooftops with 250MW of the latest PV technology, which has sufficient capacity to meet the needs of approximately 162,000 U.S. homes.

"This programme is a milestone in utility-owned PV generation in the United States and Trina Solar is excited to play a significant part in supplying modules representing approximately 20 per cent of the solar capacity needed for the programme," said Jinan Ago, chairman and CEO of Trina Solar. "This is a major commitment by SCE towards clean power generation, and the fact that they have chosen Trina Solar to supply them with premium performance modules is expected to further increase the company's global reach and reputation for high quality products and raise brand awareness among key customers in the commercial and utility PV segment."

"We look to innovative companies like Trina Solar for solutions that benefit the environment and our customers," said Mark Nelson, SCE director, generation planning and strategy. "We're glad Trina Solar can be a part of California's clean energy future."
