Canadian energy efficiency company Legend Power Systems has secured a distribution deal in South Africa with Cape Town-based voltage optimization company Energy Optimisa.

The agreement gives Legend, which manufactures a device to help commercial and industrial customers achieve energy savings through voltage optimization, access to the South African and Sub-Saharan African market with exclusivity based on established order volume for the next six years.

Commenting on the deal, Alan Palmer, CEO of Energy Optimisa, said the company was impressed by the “inherent strength in the design of Legend's solution”.

Energy Optimisa has already installed Legend's energy saving device, the Electrical Harmonizer, in multiple retail locations across South Africa and a number of projects are currently underway.
