Vancouver, B.C., Canada – February 10, 2021 – Legend Power® Systems (TSX-V: LPS, OTC: LPSIF), a global leader in commercial electrical system solutions, today announced that a major National ESCO has engaged Legend’s SmartGATE™ Insights Service to assess 10 buildings owned and operated by the City of Boston as part of a 10-year, multi-million-dollar Energy Performance Contracting agreement. The initial 10 buildings consist of schools and other key City of Boston buildings.
This assessment supports the long-term performance contracting agreement between the City of Boston and its National ESCO partner. Under the agreement, the ESCO will use SmartGATE™ Insights to find energy waste seeping into the buildings and identify where power conditions are hurting the uptime and lifetime of major building systems.
“We believe that the ESCO’s selection of SmartGATE Insights will demonstrate the value of the SmartGATE platform as part of a full energy management program focused on saving energy, reducing operational risks, and increasing resiliency for the City of Boston. This not only helps both the City and the ESCO save energy but also shows how we can protect newly installed equipment to maximize system longevity and reliability,” said Mike Cioce, VP of Sales and Marketing for Legend Power Systems. “The success of this initial analysis could potentially expand our footprint with the end customer.”
This success builds on recent wins and significant momentum for Legend Power Systems in the $15 billion a year ESCO market. “I am pleased to also announce that Legend Power has promoted Mark Schneider to Strategic Accounts Director for the ESCO Market. Mark brings over 25 years of progressive ESCO experience across the country for some of the top names in the ESCO space,” continued Mr. Cioce. “His deep experience will help us to continue to serve and grow our ESCO partnerships across the US”.
SmartGATE is an industry-leading, turnkey solution which identifies and fixes underperformance and waste in the electrical system of a commercial building. These performance issues often impact key areas of commercial real estate metrics including occupant safety and satisfaction as well as financial performance. This waste can also lead to higher operating costs, lower net operating income and other potential financial risks to the building owner, including adverse tenant experiences.
