Amazing Hybrid Bicycle Provides Clean Power for Those Living Off the Grid
Billionaire Manoj Bhargava is the founder of the Billions in Change movement, an organization dedicated to creating solutions for some of the world’s most pressing problems – energy, water and health. The hybrid bicycle is a pioneering project designed to help rural communities across the world that live off the grid or only have access to limited power each day. The bicycle uses human power to turn a flywheel that runs a generator to produce electricity. The electricity is then stored in a battery. Bhargava says that an hour of pedaling can produce enough electricity to run a rural household for 24 hours.
