In this era of grid parity and solar panel commoditization, residential installers need more than just PV modules to generate true customer value. After all, even the latest and greatest technologies represent only one facet for ensuring high-performing rooftop solar systems long after installation.
Now installers have access to a total residential solar solution for reliable, high-value rooftop PV systems: The Trina Solar US Advantage. From initial savings on system costs to ongoing support from local Trina Solar US teams, rooftop solar installers can offer customers more benefits than ever before.
Below are the top five ways Trina Solar US Advantage can help installers deliver more solar value for customers.
1. Initial Savings on Rooftop PV System Costs
The compact but high-powered design of the Trina Vertex S+ modules lets installers offer customers up-front savings. With up to 420W+ maximum power and 21.5% maximum efficiency in a smaller and lighter frame, installers can pack more power per roof using fewer Vertex S+ panels than it would take using traditional modules to attain the same system size.
Vertex S+ modules are also highly compatible with widely used balance-of-system components, which mitigates scheduling and installation risks to avoid added labor costs.
2. Lower Degradation for More Solar Power
In addition to its compact but high-powered design, Vertex S+ modules have lower degradation over time compared to traditional PV modules. The lower degradation rate can result in up to 4% more power over 25 years, benefitting the PV system’s end users. By generating power at higher levels for a longer period than traditional modules, this lower degradation translates to more power for homeowners over their system’s lifespan.
Trina accomplishes this feat by incorporating n-type i-TOPCon solar cell technology into the Vertex S+ modules. This innovative manufacturing process improves the panels’ long-term performance, efficiency, and reliability — improvements installers can turn into enduring customer value.
3. Solar Panels with Sleek, All-black Aesthetics
Let’s face it — aesthetics matter, and homeowners want a sleek and modern solar panel design for their rooftops. The elegant, all-black Vertex S+ modules complement any roof style, greatly augmenting otherwise empty space.
This preference doesn’t change whether a customer plans to live in the house for years to continue reaping the benefits of renewable energy or intends to sell the home soon. Studies show that a rooftop PV system can increase property values and attract more homebuyers seeking a smaller carbon footprint and lower energy costs.
The Vertex S+ modules set a new bar for residential solar aesthetics by showing how high-powered and high-efficiency rooftop PV systems don’t have to sacrifice a home’s curb appeal.
4. Rooftop PV System Reliability and Longevity
The benefits don’t end there. When installers choose Vertex S+ modules, they also gain access to the total Trina Solar US Advantage residential solution to ensure rooftop PV system reliability, longevity, and value.
All Trina PV modules undergo rigorous in-house testing and extensive independent third-party testing to ensure the highest levels of quality control, reliability, and performance. As part of Trina’s Vertex family of products, Vertex S+ is no exception.
In addition to the modules’ proven track record of bankability, the Trina Solar US Advantage also provides distributors and installers with a local support network across the country. After completing a project, customers can turn to this US-based team to answer questions about performance or warranties, facilitate new orders from Trina’s dedicated supply of residential modules, and more.
Together, the Trina Solar US Advantage residential solution with Vertex S+ modules ensures installers can offer reliable solar power value for their customers long after completing a rooftop PV project.
5. TrinaProtect 25/25 Warranty Program
Solar panel customers want to know that their PV systems will continue generating renewable energy to recoup their initial investments and lower their energy costs in the future. The TrinaProtect Warranty Program, with its industry-leading 25-year product and 25-year performance warranties, lets installers offer this long-term customer peace of mind — and all without having to lift a finger. And, if a claim is needed, Trina’s warranty program is an easy process for customers.
TrinaProtect automatically applies at purchase to all residential panels in the US. This automatic coverage means no strings attached, no sign-up hassles, no exclusivity requirements, no additional registration, no extra qualification training, and, most perhaps most importantly, no customer confusion.
Supporting Rooftop Installers, Facilitating Solar Supply
With the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) extending the solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) until 2030, installers have another tool for their tool belts in the form of a 30% tax credit for residential end users.
The incentive should further bolster an already booming residential solar sector, which is coming off of historical growth in Q4 2022 with 1.57GWdc installed — a whopping 43% increase over Q3 2021 and an impressive 16% increase over Q2 2022. These numbers represent quite the accomplishment, considering the lingering pandemic-related supply-chain disruptions during much of last year.
As the sector continues this upward trajectory through the decade and beyond, Trina Solar US Advantage stands ready to facilitate the surging demand. The smart residential solar solution gives installers access to a dedicated module supply of the compact but high-powered Vertex S+. Manufactured at state-of-the-art, high-capacity manufacturing hubs in Thailand and Vietnam, these facilities provide distributors, suppliers, and installers with more long-term forecasting certainty and supply reliability.
With its experienced US-based sales, operations, and support teams, the Trina Solar US Advantage unlocks new opportunities for installers to improve customer satisfaction and grow their businesses.
