MEET THE CREATORS OF “THE CHARGE CYCLE” ON THE NEXT GREEN POWER REPORT

2/1/2013

Riverside, Calif. – Tune in to Riverside Public Utilities weekly radio program the Green Power Report on Monday, February 4, at 6:30 p.m. on AM 590 The Answer, as host Mike Bacich welcomes the creators of “The Charge Cycle”.

Remember the last time you were out and your cell phone died because you didn’t have a way to charge it? Well New York City designers Navjot Kaur and David Krawczyk are working to provide a solution to that problem with their “Charge Cycle” – a bicycle that provides an alternative mode of transportation and becomes a free public charging station to anyone willing to connect, hop on, and pedal.

Find out how these Brooklyn inventors are working toward getting at least 30 of these human powered bike stations on the streets of the Big Apple this year with their Kickstarter campaign and hear their ideas for future installations in cities around the world.

The multi award winning Green Power Report has been on-air since 2007 and serves as one of Inland Southern California’s key sources for news about environmental stewardship, sustainable living practices, and renewable energy. Past guests have included area city and utilities officials as well as top environmental bloggers, activists, celebrities, and corporate heads including: Curtis Ravenel, Global Head of Sustainability, Bloomberg; Alexandra Cousteau, world famous environmentalist; and David Stubbs, Head of Sustainability for the 2012 London Olympic Games.
