As part of its two-pronged strategy to expand its sales channels on a regional and customer basis, tier 1 PV module manufacturer, Trina Solar is establishing its main operations for Latin America in the capital city of Chile, Santiago. The company said it would be servicing commercial, utility and off-grid customers throughout the continent with a focus on Chile, Mexico, Brazil and neighbouring countries.
“Latin America has long been an emerging market for solar, and we think there are countries in the region that are now primed to rapidly grow the solar market,” said Mark Mendenhall, President of Trina Solar Americas. “We see the Latin American market as an excellent opportunity to expand our sales efforts by providing clean, job creating energy.”
The establishment of operations in Chile mean that the company has now established a presence that is claimed to cover all the Americas including the USA, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America.
