Bill's Genosa's passion, both professionally and personally, is about curtailing man's influence on climate change. Being a father first, he would love to leave this planet in good health for his children. Bill says, "Teaching future innovators, that being children and students, that there are cleaner energy alternatives is what truly inspires me." Bill started his company in 1998 after inventing the Pedal-A-Watt, a bicycle stand combined with a generator that enables a bike owner to create his own energy. Bill has sold his Pedal-A-Watt globally. It has been used in Africa to power simple lighting for studying at night, and after hurricane Sandy to help power phones and other small devices. Bill says, "I believe the future of our planet rests with innovations from our younger generation. By creating a platform to question our current use of energy, we can positively influence our carbon footprint and future climate change."
