The solar technology company revealed that its expansion in the South Africa market has been fueled by the unprecedented growth of sales in the region.

Leading solar technology manufacturer, Trina Solar, has opened a new office in Johannesburg and a warehouse in Cape Town as growing demand for its solar products in the South Africa market continues to rise exponentially.

The solar technology company revealed that its expansion in the South Africa market has been fueled by the unprecedented growth of sales in the region. The company reported that it tripled solar PV module sales volumes in 2023.

According to Trina, the new office and warehouse aim to enhance the company’s distribution network in South Africa. This addition, along with an existing warehouse in Durban, will allow the company to deliver solar products faster and more efficiently to customers across the country and neighbouring regions. 

Trina says it aims to bring its latest solar technologies and full solutions to include mounting structures, energy storage systems, and an extensive range of solar panels to the South Africa market, catering to the diverse needs of its customers.

“With South Africa’s goal of reaching net zero emissions by 2050, Trina Solar aims to lead the way in providing solar panels to support this journey towards a sustainable future. The company’s n-type module portfolio is based on leading 210mm product technology and n-type i-TOPCon cell technology, which can be applied in numerous settings to help customers meet their energy goals,“ said Gonzalo de la Viña, Trina EMEA President.
