Thus far in this series, we’ve offered tips on originating C&I solar projects, identifying if a business is a good fit for solar and maximizing C&I solar system value. Now, we’d like to show what makes Trina Solar’s C&I Solutions the ideal all-in-one smart solution for commercial and industrial solar projects.
During the past two decades, Trina Solar has accumulated a comprehensive understanding of best practices across C&I solar development, financing, engineering design, construction and management. This also includes providing high-quality turnkey projects with the entire process under risk control.
Trina Solar took this extensive industry experience and created its C&I Solutions business. The all-in-one solution uses an innovative bundling of modules, inverters and racking to deliver better power gains and higher return on investment (ROI) for C&I solar projects. Let’s take a look under the hood to see what makes this solution a great value for C&I solar projects.
Custom Scoping and Seamless Component Procurement
From the project’s onset, Trina Solar’s dedicated C&I service team custom scopes each commercial project/portfolio and helps manage the procurement. This accommodates a wide range of project designs, including fixed-tilt, ground, canopy, trackers and rooftop.
The C&I Solutions service team then works with developers and EPC’s to secure Tier 1 PV modules, inverters, racking and other balance-of-system (BOS) components. This ensures dependable, on-time delivery to keep projects on schedule and reduce the chances of any delays.
Simplified System Integration and Interconnection
Since the C&I Solutions team is involved in the system design and procurement, EPCs and developers don’t need to work with multiple vendors and distributors. This helps streamline delivery and install logistics while guaranteeing on-site component interoperability.
To optimize system performance and maximize energy yield, Trina’s C&I Solutions use high-efficiency, industry-leading solar modules. This includes bifacial modules with bifacial optimized racking for greater energy yield compared to monofacial modules on the same area.
For certain models, modules snap into place for simpler and faster installations, which helps speed up install times. The preconfigured inverters have a plug-and-play design that reduces field wiring and further speeds up installation to avoid delays.
The project’s custom design improves the yield potential of the roof for greater panel coverage and higher power density. Meanwhile, innovative cable management provides robust protection from harsh roof environments that can contribute to costly downtime.
These aspects allow Trina’s C&I Solution to simplify system integration and interconnection while providing greater project value.
Dedicated C&I Team
From the project’s inception through installation and all throughout the PV system’s life, Trina Solar’s C&I Solutions team provides ongoing assistance to ensure the project’s success.
This team includes experienced:
- supply chain professionals
- application engineers
- logistics experts
- technical services
- operations and maintenance (O&M) services
At the end of the day, Trina Solar’s C&I Solutions makes procurement easier for developers and EPCs, all while maximizing the value of commercial solar projects. As a seamless, reliable commercial solar solution from one of solar’s most bankable companies, Trina Solar’s C&I Solutions is the next wave for C&I solar.
