Our Light Bike

Energy Bike Photo

Business Entrepreneur Richard Branson, of the Virgin organization, and actress Darryl Hannah, are among the first to check out our "light bike" at the Virgin Festival, in Baltimore in early August of 2007. We had this bike custom made to demonstrate alternative forms of power. If you ride the bike, you have a choice to power the traditional incandescent light or the compact fluorescent. You will quickly learn that in order to power the traditional bulb, you will have to work about four times as hard as if you were pedaling the compact fluorescent light. It is a very tangible lesson in saving energy and symbolic of our new green building.
