Multi-Family and Commercial Real Estate Leader’s Third Multi-Unit Order
Vancouver, Canada, September 17, 2019 – Legend Power Systems Inc. (LPS:TSXV), a global leader in onsite energy management technology, announces a follow-on order for six additional SmartGATE™ systems by a multi-family and commercial real estate investment company, totalling C$537,168. This order brings to 12, the number of its 439 multi-family buildings that the customer has outfitted with Legend’s energy-management solution.
The customer is an investor in, and active manager of, properties in the U.S. and Canada. Its $7 billion portfolio of multi-family properties includes over 439 buildings totaling approximately 36,000 units. They also have a commercial property portfolio of over 55 buildings containing approximately 6.2 million square feet of floor space. Legend estimates the total potential market for its products in the North American multi-family rental buildings vertical at US$750 million1.
”This follow-on order is a testament to the broad value that SmartGATE™ creates for owners of multifamily properties in North America,” said Legend’s CEO Randy Buchamer. “The SmartGATE™ platform is making buildings better from the minute power enters the customer property. It analyzes and improves power quality before it’s utilized throughout the customer’s buildings, increasing the uptime and lifetime of systems, while increasing energy efficiencies, and making their properties more environmentally sustainable. Multi-unit sales are common across all our verticals with 74% of all SmartGATE’s sold to date being multiple sales of between 2 and 18 units to individual customers. The breadth of benefits is driving increasing interest and demand for the product, and our sales funnel has never been stronger in both Canada and in U.S. markets we have entered.”
