TUSTIN, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 22, 2015) - This Earth Day, EGen, a start-up alternative energy technology company, is introducing a new energy solution to help consumers break free from their energy bills. Homeowners are able to completely eliminate their dependence on the energy grid and reduce their energy bills by upgrading to a state-of-the-art exercise bike, the new EGen Energy Bike, that transfers kinetic energy to storable DC power. 

A quick 1 hour and 15 minute workout on the EGen Energy Bike can recharge the standard EGen Battery Bank to provide enough energy to power a 1,500 - 1,800 square foot home for an entire day! This is also the equivalent to 64 hours of viewing on a 42" LCD TV, 60 continuous days worth of light from an LED Lamp, or 20.5 hours of continuous air conditioning.

"In producing and storing our own energy, we are not only eliminating our energy bills, but reducing our carbon footprint while improving our physical health -- the ultimate solution to a better world," said Landon Duval, Founder and Chief Technology Officer of EGen. 

The EGen Energy Bike is equipped with the latest workout advancements including 24 on-board workouts; iFit Live technology to follow any Google map course, including automatic incline and decline; as well as the monitoring of fitness measurements such as distance, speed, heart rate, calories burned, incline, time and watts produced.

Working in tandem with the EGen Energy Bike, the EGen Black Box Battery Bank connects to your home's electricity panel, switching the home from the energy grid to DC power. With a standard Battery Bank holding 10.56 KWH, each Battery Bank can be customized to meet individual homeowner energy usage, and can be upgraded to hold 48, 96 and even up to 192 hours of back-up or more. The Battery Bank can be installed anywhere to power your home, up to 2,000 feet from your electricity panel, yields zero emissions, is virtually silent, maintenance free and built to last for more than 10 years.

The EGen Energy Bike directly recharges the Battery Bank through connected workouts. Or, for those looking for additional alternative energy solutions, the Battery Bank alone or with the Energy Bike, can connect directly to any solar panel technology, harnessing and storing solar and kinetic energy. The Battery Bank can also be used as a stand-alone solution, providing power during peak energy times and utilizing the grid to recharge during off-peak times.
