Vancouver, B.C., Canada – February 17, 2022 – Legend Power® Systems Inc. (TSX.V: LPS) (OTCQB: LPSIF) (“Legend Power” or the “Company”) a global leader in commercial electrical system solutions, announces that following delays due to supply chain constraints into the end of calendar 2021, the Company is on track to ship 20 units of its next-generation SmartGATE™ Platform by the end of March 2022. Legend Power also announces that the first of these 20 units has now been installed and is exceeding savings performance expectations. The balance of the 20 units are in production and expected to ship prior to March 31, 2022 (during fiscal Q2 F2022).
“Through our cloud-based solution, we are remotely monitoring the first installed next-generation SmartGATE™ system in real-time, and thus far it has exceeded performance expectations,” said Mark Petersen, VP of Engineering. “This first nextgen SmartGATE™ system is the culmination of 3 years of effort by the entire Legend Power organization, and market interest continues to grow on the back of recent industry conferences we have attended.”
Calendar 2021 saw limited inventory component availability due to global supply shortages, softening Q1 F2022 (ending December 31, 2021) shipments. However, the Company is proactively managing component pricing and procurement logistics to ensure future sales growth demands are met.
“These positive metrics from our first installed next generation unit combined with the feedback we are getting from customers and ESCO partners is encouraging for future order growth,” said Randy Buchamer, CEO of Legend Power. “While supply chain issues impacted Q1 F2022 deliveries, our efforts to deliver 20 units by the end of Q2 F2022 reflects that we are getting back on schedule. We are seeing continuous improvement with our focus on delivering units to our partners and customers as quickly and efficiently as we can.”
