Businessman, philanthropist and creator of 5-hour Energy, Manoj Bhargava, founded Billions in Change as a way to positively impact humanity. Billions in Change is a movement to save the world by creating and implementing solutions to the most basic global problems – water, energy and health. Doing so will raise billions of people out of poverty and improve the lives of the rich and the poor. One of these solutions is the Free Electric hybrid bike.
The Free Electric machine gives people the power to generate electricity themselves – pollution free. The machine is small, light and simple. So how does it work? You pedal the hybrid bicycle, the bicycle wheel drives a flywheel, which turns a generator, which charges a battery. Pedaling one of these bicycles for one hour provides electricity for 24 hours – no utility bill, and no exhaust, no waste.
In 2015, Bhargava pledged 99% of his net worth to improving the well-being of the world’s less fortunate and plans to distribute 10,000 of his stationary, power generating bikes to rural homes and villages in India.
The hybrid bicycle not only encourages daily exercise and good health, but is a way to empower people all around the world to generate and use clean energy.
