Vancouver, B.C. – Forward-thinking organizations around the globe understand the strategic value of sustainability. A company that sees sustainability as a priority can better anticipate and react to a range of external factors such as economic, environmental and regulatory changes. In addition, the brand reputation benefits within the context of the social contract are invaluable.
Canadian-based Legend Power® Systems Inc. (TSX-V: LPS) is a global leader in voltage management technology. The Legend Power Systems team works with clients across Canada and the U.S., using their groundbreaking SmartGATE™ technology – an intelligent system that provides a complete power management solution for a building.
A recent example of a client’s success in this area is Greater Moncton Roméo LeBlanc International Airport (YQM). Working with Legend’s channel sales partner, Haven Consultants International, installation of the SmartGATE resulted in the airport having a projected savings of 150,000 kWh per year and reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 45 metric tons annually. In addition, YQM is expected to save more than $180,000 in energy costs during the first 10 years of SmartGATE’s operation.
YQM’s installation of the SmartGATE is the first by an airport and represents Legend’s entry to an entirely new and potentially significant sales vertical. YQM is an active environmental leader within the community of 100+ international airports across North America. The recently installed SmartGATE helped the airport achieve Airport Carbon Accreditation Level 2 – Reduction in May 2018. It is one of only four Canadian airports to attain this – a major feat in environmental best practice.
“YQM is proud of its environmental achievements and works hard to identify innovative energy savings solutions,” states Vincent Martin, Director of Operations at YQM. “Legend’s SmartGATE, a single energy management solution which has reduced our kWh usage by 3.8% (based on initial M&V), was an obvious choice and has become a valuable piece in our energy management strategy.”
Said Randy Buchamer, CEO at Legend Power Systems: “YQM is a great example of a customer in a new market vertical achieving measurable impact after installing the SmartGATE. We continually see small, medium and large organizations turning to us for help in decreasing their environmental footprint and to save money. With a continuing track record of success, more companies are looking at Legend’s proven solution.”
