SPI: Trina Solar enters partnership agreement (Video)
Trina Solar is launching a new partner program in the U.S. that is intended to help solar installers grow their business.
"Our Trina Solar Partner Plus program puts the strength and resources of a global manufacturer squarely behind our partner distributors and installers so that they can both capture more business," said Mark Mendenhall, president of Trina Solar Americas. "This program offers a range of sales and marketing tools and adds to our ongoing commitment to helping our partners succeed. Together, we can help more homeowners and more small businesses go solar across the nation."
Program partners can register for the free program online and collect points by purchasing products through one of Trina Solar's distributors. These points can then be redeemed for sales and marketing tools, which were selected based on extensive research on installer needs. The tools include exclusive product offers, personalized sales, marketing support, technical services, and specialized trainings that help installers grow their solar businesses.
In addition, Trina Solar recently received recognition by two organizations for its sustainable practices and field performance. The Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition, in its annual global review of sustainable manufacturing practices, ranked the Company first among solar panel manufacturers throughout the world. Additionally, Trina Solar's panels placed first on the California Energy Commission's PTC/STC ratio that estimates real-world panel performance.
Trina Solar was also present at Solar Power International in Orlando, Fla., this week, when the announcement was made.
