Transition Milwaukee gears up (pun intended, folks) with Cream City Rickshaw and the creation of these VERY cool pedal generators for Power Down Week, which launches this June 25 and culminates in Energy Independence Day on...well...Independence Day, July 4, 2011. I sat down with Andrew, Dan, Liam, Andor, Randy, James and others to find out how these cool pedal generator contraptions work, how they provide an alternative means to accessing clean power, and create awareness of our own energy consumption. Speaking of consumption, the guys let me hang out with my puppy-baby, Naima, and enjoy smoky, delicious BBQ and brewski.
