Vancouver, B.C., Canada – October 1, 2020 – Legend Power® Systems (TSX-V: LPS) a global leader in commercial electrical system solutions, today announced an Ontario-based College has purchased two SmartGATE™ platforms, becoming the 10th leading college or university to deploy SmartGATE. This win follows last week’s announcement that the U.S. energy services division (“ESCO”) of a premier international Fortune 100 corporation purchased two SmartGATE platforms for a New York school district customer.
Leadership for the future starts with education today. Top educational institutions are focused on providing amazing learning environments for their students and staff, and leadership for strengthened environment, social and governance (ESG) standards. The SmartGATE platform provides a unified active power management platform ensuring optimal building performance for ideal learning environments while reducing electrical consumption and related system costs. Legend’s unique building technology allows leading educational institutions to manage for the triple win – safer & better learning environments, lower operating costs, and protecting the environment through lower GHG emissions.
“The education marketplace has historically been a very strong vertical for us in Ontario. While we’re certainly pleased to see activity levels being matched by multi-family, and commercial properties, education remains a large opportunity where we expect to generate strong growth in the years ahead,” said Legend’s CEO Randy Buchamer. “As community leaders, educators were early-adopters of our SmartGATE technology. Then, as now, the combination of the positive economics and environmental leadership both hold appeal to educators. We’re pleased to have their continued support.”
With 45 college and university campuses across the Province of Ontario and approximately 4,450 throughout the rest of Canada and the U.S., this end-market offers significant future growth potential for Legend Power.
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 and 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 damaged tenant experience.
