About Legend Power Systems Inc.

Legend Power Systems Inc. is a leading electrical energy conservation company that manufactures and markets a patented device to help commercial and industrial customers achieve significant energy savings through voltage optimization. Legend Power’s Electrical Harmonizer-AVR eliminates inefficiencies by delivering the optimal level of voltage a user needs. Many customers receive higher voltage levels than required at certain points of the grid from electrical utilities delivering higher levels to compensate for line loss across the feeder length. Higher than nominal voltage can affect the lifespan of electrical equipment and result in high monthly utility bills. By delivering the optimal voltage to the user, Legend Power’s Electrical Harmonizer-AVR helps companies reduce their electricity bills, maintenance costs and greenhouse gas emissions while increasing the life of electrical equipment. The technology also decreases capital and operating costs for electrical utilities.
