RadWagon from Rad Power Bikes is Named a Top 10 Green Product for 2019

SEATTLE - December 4, 2018 - The RadWagon Electric Cargo Bike from Rad Power Bikes is a Top 10 Product for 2019 in BuildingGreen's annual awards curated to help building professionals improve their impact on the environment.

As the first mode of transportation ever included on the list, the RadWagon provides a solution for reducing carbon emissions and energy consumption.

“Sustainable transportation options are an important tool for buildings and businesses striving to bring down their overall carbon footprint. This is exactly why we built the RadWagon - to replace car trips, reduce traffic congestion and emissions, and make commuting and the movement of goods so much more fun,” said Mike Radenbaugh, Co-Founder and CEO of Rad Power Bikes.

“We are honored that BuildingGreen not only recognizes our efforts but also the importance of eco-friendly transportation.” As reported by BuildingGreen, employees driving to and from work can cause as much pollution as the office building produces during operation—or more. In the U.S., transportation consumes almost 30% of the country’s energy and produces almost 30% of its carbon dioxide emissions, according to the Energy Information Administration, which is higher than industrial, commercial, residential, and electricity sectors.

The RadWagon is a realistic alternative to gas-powered vehicles with its 750-watt electric motor, pedal assistance and on-demand throttle, 350 pound carrying capacity, and direct-to-consumer price. It handles just like a standard-sized bike, yet allows riders to conquer long commutes and hilly terrain while hauling everything from equipment to groceries to kids.

Seattle-based Rad Power Bikes is leading the ebike movement by delivering feature-rich ebikes at wholesale prices through their consumer-direct approach. By making ebikes more accessible, they are revolutionizing transportation options for individuals and organizations of all scales.

For the past 17 years, BuildingGreen has selected ten green building products that significantly improve upon standard “business-as-usual” practices. The RadWagon and other products were selected for their ability to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions, improve product life cycles, and create a net-positive impact on society and the environment.
