    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
inefficiencies by delivering the optimal level of voltage a user needs. Many
customers receive higher voltage levels than required at certain points of the
grid from electrical utilities delivering higher levels to compensate for line
loss across the feeder length. 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.
