Just got another report of a PEG doing yeoman's work at SXSW.
My husband just took our nPower PEG to SXSW Interactive in Austin, TX -- he said it was a life saver because at such a popular and crowded event, there was a lot of competition for charging at the limited number of outlets available (this is the type of event where people were glued to their handhelds). He rode by bicycle to and from the venue and walked around a lot at the event, keeping his PEG in his backpack -- it kept his iPhone fully charged for 3.5 days of the event!
Glad we could help!
Last month we had a great visit from the kids at Urban Community School in Cleveland. Here are some pics of the visit. If your school would like to learn about kinetic energy and how we make electricity out of it, let us know. Thanks for the great afternoon!
Last year, the PEG powered the wifi on a SXSW Startup Bus. This year, the PEG does it again! Here is the PEG in a TV interview, and the PEG mounted on the wall of the bus powering the WIFI. Click here to see the video from 2012.
One of our happiest days here at Tremont Electric was when REI decided to be the first US retailer to carry the nPower® PEG. Today, President Obama named REI President Sally Jewell to join his cabinet as Secretary of the Interior. Pretty cool. Thanks to REI for helping us introduce kinetic energy to the consumer market, and congrats to Sally!
