Power Your Home & Get Fit?
Would you ride a stationary bike to power your TV?
Sure. What about your powering your entire home though?
We LOVE this concept but I’m not sure it’s for me. I’m more of a “solar” guy.
But still, imagine powering your home or off grid cabin for an entire day just by exercising for an hour. Would that motivate you to do it?
Our life off the grid completely revolves around living healthy and happy and this certainly would add to that.
People often complain about the high costs of energy. And so there have been some pretty ingenious moves to make generating the power re all need and love that much easier, safer and at a lower cost. And who ever says they get all the exercise they need?
Most importantly, this free power invention has the potential to lift the 1.3 billion people who presently live without electricity out of a world of poverty.
When an individual pedals the bike, the action drives a flywheel, which turns a generator and charges a battery. This means from just one hour of pedaling, a rural household can be supplied with energy for 24 hours.
The billionaire and his team developed the bicycle to take advantage of mechanical energy created by humans to solve one of the world’s most pervasive problems.
“Everything requires energy. Energy is the great equalizer,” says Bhargava, adding that over half of the world’s population has no access to electricity or access to electricity for two or three hours per day.
We’re Doing Our Part Too
We have come a long way in the past year with our off grid cabin. We’ve even made the exciting, and also polarizing, decision to order a Tesla Cybertruck. Why you might ask? Well, did you know the Cybertuck is able to output both 120V and 240V? This is incredible to help power our cabin on those day the solar system just can’t keep up. usually after 5-6 days of snow and clouds.
Imagine powering your home for a week with your Tesla, sending it to your local super charger to charge up and then bringing it back home to power your home again!
If you’re in the market for a Tesla yourself then please consider using our Tesla Referral Link and we’ll both get 1500kms of FREE supercharging!
