TORONTO, July 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Kingspan Insulated Panels ("Kingspan"), a
customer of Legend Power Systems Inc. ("Legend Power") has reduced its
annual energy consumption by over 60,000 kWh and eliminated over 11
tons of greenhouse gas emissions by installing Legend Power's
Harmonizer-AVR in their 300,000 sq. foot Caledon, Ontario location.
The savings Kingspan has achieved by installing the Harmonizer-AVR, a
device which saves energy by regulating voltage, is equivalent to
permanently removing over 450 standard fluorescent light bulbs from
Kingspan is committed to providing sustainable building envelope
solutions while ensuring that their global portfolio of over 100 sales
and manufacturing facilities are operating at peak efficiency.
Kingspan's global mandate is to be a net zero corporation by 2020; or
more simply put, Kingspan's buildings will produce as much energy as
they consume. It is this commitment to sustainability that led
Kingspan to Legend Power.
Legend Power installed the Harmonizer-AVR in Kingspan's Ontario location
in March of 2013 and Kingspan has been saving energy ever since. The
Harmonizer-AVR is installed in a building's electrical room where power
enters a building and regulates incoming voltage levels, saving
energy. Power utilities are unable to fine tune voltage levels on the
power grid, which often times results in energy waste due to a higher
than necessary voltage supply at the building level. The Harmonizer-AVR
eliminates this waste. As the Harmonizer-AVR has no moving parts, the
savings Kingspan has realized will persist for over 10 years at a
"We are extremely pleased to be a part of Kingspan's Path to Net Zerotm initiative" says Legend Power CEO Randy Buchamer. "Environmental
excellence is one of our core values; we are excited to see our product
deliver such great results while working with a company so committed to
Congratulations to Kingspan for putting their commitment to
environmental excellence to action.
