We’re Legend Power® Solutions Inc. and we’re really pleased to be up and running in the Smart Buildings Center! As we ramp up our presence in Seattle, we couldn’t think of more aligned organizations than NEEC and the SBC. We now have a presence in the Tool Lending Library (you can now borrow our proprietary Voltage Loggers to easily measure real time voltage in your building) and you can check out our interactive map of the scope of overvoltage across Seattle on SBC’s Smart Board.
Legend manufactures the SmartGATE™; an innovative energy conservation and management platform for high-performance buildings. We reduce your building’s energy usage by 3-5% and reduce the impact grid volatility has on your building.
After an initial meeting, a usual first step is to do a voltage profile of the building using our Voltage Logger, which you can borrow for free from SBC’s Tool Lending Library. It lets you see voltage. It simply plugs into a wall socket and records detailed voltage levels in the building. We recommend approximately 2 weeks of data. We download the data from the on-board SD card, from which we then provide the voltage profile for the period.
Curious about your building? Or a client’s building? Check for yourself if your building is over or under voltage, and what you could potentially be saving on energy. SmartGATE™ also improves your building’s resiliency by minimizing downtime due to voltage issues. We combined voltage readings from around town with publicly available Seattle City Light data to create our interactive map of overvoltage, and projected usage and savings. Check it out here: https://legendpower.com/markets/#Seattle, or at the Smart Buildings Center.
We don’t know your issues yet, so we don’t know if SmartGATE™ is a solution for you. But we do know that with almost 300 installed, 74% of our customers have purchased between 2 and 18 systems. They install SmartGATE™, it works, and they install more. We couldn’t put it better than our customer Spencer Wood, Director of Facilities Management at Humber College:
“It’s not like when you change a light… you just save on the light. You change this… you save on everything!”
