Many people dream of having to power their own house without the need to pay big money for it. This article will show you how to do it AND get a fit body figure at the same time.
This idea is credited to Manoj Bhargava, the founder of the Free Electric hybrid bike. By using simple mechanical energy, he can transform an exercise of one hour into energy for supplying a rural household for a whole day.
By pedaling on the bicycle you are activating the flywheel and by doing so you are powering the generator, thus charging a battery.
According to Bicycling “The Free Electric is made with standard bike parts, which makes it easily fixable by any mechanic around the world. The bike is cheap, clean, and practical in terms of providing energy to those who need it most on a global scale.
Additionally, Bhargava says that their“target is to begin with India, but really it can be used anywhere. There are 1.3 billion people around the world who are still living without access to electricity.”
Moreover, he states that the Free Electric basically makes “better health, more leisure time, better access to education, and opportunities for entrepreneurship—it could literally change the world.”
This has got to be one of the greatest motivators to start exercising. Not only do you get fit, but also save some money.
