Manoj Bhargava, inventor of the 5 hours energy drink, uses his great fortune to help solve the energy crisis. Pedal your bike Electric free one hour, one person can generate enough energy for the basic needs of a modest home for a whole day.
A bike specially designed so that the three billion people who do not have access to electricity in the world, an invention so that they can profit from it in a sustainable way.
How does Free electric work.
It has the ability to generate energy while pedaling: a system equipped with a stationary bike and a battery that will help run lights and small devices in your home throughout the day with just an hour pedaling. The system allows us to convert the kinetic energy that we produce when pedaling into electricity, which will build up in a battery, and then use it at home.
Bhargava plans to put his idea into practice and it costs him $ 4 billion (no one ever said solving an energy crisis was cheap).
“It’s so simple we think we can do it for $ 100… any bike technician around the world can fix it”
This year, the first 50 Bhargava bikes were launched in 15-20 villages in Uttarakhand, India, ahead of their large-scale launch.
Of course, there are many questions in the air around the system. Hopefully, when it starts going out, we can explore how it works in more depth.
