    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-Automatic Voltage Regulator
(AVR) eliminates inefficiencies by delivering the optimal level of voltage a
user needs. Most customers receive higher voltage levels than required at
certain points of the grid from electrical utilities. Higher than nominal
voltage can affect the lifespan of electrical equipment and result in high
monthly utility bills. By delivering the optimal voltage to the user, Legend
Power's Electrical 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.
