"Pedal Power is an exceptional tool for presenting the basic concepts of electrical energy and efficiency. WPPI currently owns three Pedal Power sets that we use in schools, open house events, trade shows, etc. to promote the importance of conserving energy resources. The visual and interactive demonstrations that can be done with the bike really help engage the audience, whether they are young or old.
Prior to the Pedal Power, we used a predecessor bicycle-powered generator that was in constant need of repair with little or no available support. Greg and Laurie (at A1 Cable Solutions) have put a significant amount of time and thought into making their bike and display board sturdy, safe and user-friendly. Plus, any problems or questions that have arisen during our use of the equipment or lesson plans have been immediately addressed.
Because of the superior product quality and responsive customer service, we plan to continue using the Pedal Power as a key component of our energy education activities."

"The Wisconsin K-12 Energy Education Program (KEEP) is a huge fan of the Pedal Power unit. The “legs on” approach to comparing efficiencies of different light bulbs cannot be beat – every rider expresses the same amazement when he or she truly feels the difference between an incandescent and fluorescent light bulb. We have loved working with A1 Cable Solutions. They are truly dedicated professionals who are always working to ensure their product is top notch and at its effective best. KEEP believes everyone should “experience” energy efficiency first hand and is glad there is a resource like the Pedal Power that helps provide this experience."

"The Pedal Power unit is an invaluable tool for teaching a variety of energy education concepts in a fun, interactive legs-on format. Talk about hands-on! We've used Pedal Power at shareholder meetings, teacher workshops, classrooms, school assembly programs, and shopping malls. Easy to setup, transport and extremely reliable. A1 Cable is there when you need them. I would recommend Pedal Power for any energy education program."

We purchased our Pedal Power display to provide an interactive energy experience for our educational and community outreach efforts. The Pedal Power display has been a core teaching tool for our energy programs and outreach events, giving adults and kids a unique way to experience energy consumption and conservation! We actually purchased a second one when we opened up our second Urban Ecology Center branch."
