Bike to supply cheap energy to Kenya’s rural homes

Fancy a bike that easily carries weights of up to 150kgs and travels at 50kms per hour? Even better, you do not have to pedal it because the bike is powered by solar energy! That is not all. This bike produces enough energy to light your house for three days.

Three young Kenyans have invented and designed a multi-purpose solar-powered vehicle to supply cheap energy to Kenya’s rural homes and to ease transport as well.

Ignatius Maranga, 24, and Peter Mutai, 27, are graduates of electrical and electronics from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology and Technical University of Mombasa respectively.
