Newton, Iowa (PRWEB) April 23, 2009
On Earth Day, April 22, 2009, President Obama visited Newton, Iowa. President Obama toured Trinity Structural Towers, a manufacturer of tubular wind towers and discussed his comprehensive energy plan. Newton, Iowa is also home to TPI Composites, a manufacturer of high-performance wind turbine blades and X-Treme Scooters, a manufacturer of electric and gas powered scooters, mopeds, electric bicycles, bicycles, ATVs and Utility vehicles.
Newton is rapidly becoming a center for eco-friendly and alternative energy solution manufacturers. X-Treme scooters have been marketing scooters and mopeds since 2001. In 2006, X-Treme realized that electric vehicles were going to be an integral part of our transportation system, and began marketing electric scooters. X-Treme markets over 30 different electric scooters, bicycles, e-bikes, mopeds and vehicles. The X-Treme website can be viewed by clicking this web link – http://www.x-tremescooters.com/
Scooter and moped unit sales have increased slightly over 75% over the past two years per the Motorcycle Industry Council. X-Treme has also seen a substantial increase in scooter and moped sales, especially the electric versions. There are many reasons for purchasing an electric scooter:
Save more money by not buying gas
Zero emissions improve the environment
Reduce our dependence on foreign oil
Diminish our carbon footprint
Reduces traffic congestion as scooters navigate roads easier than automobiles
