E-Bikes May Revolutionize Transportation And Electricity In Kenya

By

Rural areas in Africa have their struggles in getting electricity, kids traveling long distances to get to school, and families even retrieving fresh water. A project manager that’s lived on the continent for over 25 years decided to make a difference by inventing a product that helps solve these issues. Thanks to Solar-E-Cycle, citizens in remote areas now have a method of transportation while also generating their own power from the sun.

Roger Christen is the man behind Solar-E-Cycle, a co-founder that’s received funding from the Energy and Environment Partnership to make his e-bikes a reality in Africa. There are several variations of the product that can hold up to three people at a time. For example, bikes that are similar to a backwards tricycle are mainly used for delivery purposes.
