CHANGZHOU, China, December 20, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Trina Solar Limited (TSL) ("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), a leading integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) products from the production of ingots, wafers and cells to the assembly of PV modules is pleased to announce the launch of "Plug me in, Light me up", a video with actor and race car driver Patrick Dempsey, which discusses solar power and the difference solar panels can make to communities off the traditional energy grid. The video highlights the human significance of the solar industry's technological advances.

Actor and race car driver Patrick Dempsey discusses the real power of solar energy to help people and the solar industry's ability to provide products to meet their needs. Mr. Dempsey is not a company spokesman. The American actor's participation was motivated by a personal interest in solar power as an energy solution; an interest which he plans to action by installing solar panels at his home in Southern California.

The video introduces viewers to Trina Solar's philanthropic efforts in bringing energy independence to a Mexican home for orphaned children, an African hospital, and an American camp for children with special medical needs. For these organizations, having solar panels to supplement their electricity generation allows them to allocate more of their resources to their central causes, whether it be offering a home to one more child or providing treatment to a new patient. In the case of the African hospital, solar panels make the difference between only being able to provide basic treatment to people during the day and having the necessary electricity to light rooms, refrigerate vaccines and extend community medical services.

Solar photovoltaics present an affordable, reliable and clean way to generate much-needed electricity for communities off the traditional energy grid and to supplement existing, more expensive electricity generation for those on the grid. As the industry continues to make great progress in improving product efficiencies and lowering the cost of solar energy, we hope that the solar industry will play a leading role in bringing energy independence to empower individuals and their communities.

The video is currently available on YouTube, as well as on Trina Solar's corporate social responsibility microsite at
