In a bid to provide electricity to millions of homes in India, an Indian-American billionaire is planning to distribute 10,000 stationary bikes to India.
Bhargava is initially planning to provide the 50 bikes to 15 to 20 small villages of Uttarakhand, before he starts with a larger distribution.
According to Times of India, these bikes would be so powerful that they will help keep lights and basic appliances of the house going for an entire day with just one hour of pedalling.
Bhargava and his family is planning to distribute around 10,000 of these free electric battery-equipped bikes in India in year 2016 itself.
He has employed over 100 engineers in his Stage 2 Innovations laboratory which is based in Farmington Hills, Michigan.
The group has created several practical inventions that are based on relatively simple technologies and that have been around for decades. The group in turn makes them more efficient and compact so they easy to transport.
