From Bicycle Retailer & Industry News…United Bicycle Institute Chooses Solar Power

UBI, a trade school that teaches classes in bicycle mechanics and custom bicycle frame building, went solar to promote sustainable technology.

"UBI supports sustainable transportation through our educational efforts in the bicycle industry. Now, we’re supporting sustainable energy, too," said UBI president Ron Sutphin. "We think we’re the only solar powered bicycle school in the world."

I know these guys think they’re great and all…but if you want to know more about one of the most environmentally stable businesses in the world (that just so happens to also be in the bike industry), check out Portland-based Chris King Components.
