    Cleveland is a city full of both innovators and opportunity for entrepreneurs!

    Just yesterday Tremont Electric, a renewable energy technology company, started selling the nPower PEG.

    The nPower PEG harvests the kinetic energy generated by human walking and uses that power to charge hand-held electronics. (wwwnPowerPEG.com)
