    About Legend Power Systems Inc.

    Legend Power Systems Inc. is a leading electrical energy conservation
company that manufactures and markets a patented device to help commercial and
industrial customers achieve significant energy savings through voltage
optimization. Legend Power's Electrical Harmonizer-AVR eliminates

loss across the feeder length. Higher than nominal voltage can affect the
lifespan of electrical equipment and result in high monthly utility bills. By

Harmonizer-AVR helps companies reduce their electricity bills, maintenance
costs and greenhouse gas emissions while increasing the life of electrical
equipment. The technology also decreases capital and operating costs for
electrical utilities.
