Tremont Electric is a company in Cleveland, Ohio that designs clean energy products using patented nPower kinetic energy. The founder and CEO of Tremont Electric, Aaron LeMieux, pitched the company’s first product, nPower PEG, a portable generator that uses or “harvests” kinetic energy to charge electrical hand-held devices, on Shark Tank in April 2013. (You put the nPower PEG in your backpack, briefcase or purse and it collects the energy you generate by walking, running or hiking all day.) LeMiuex went into the Tank seeking a whopping $2 million in exchange for 22 percent equity. All the Sharks agreed Lemieux was “a smart guy,” but, alas, he didn’t get a deal.
According to LinkedIn, less than two years after the Shark Tank episode aired, LeMieux became a certified EMT Paramedic and is working with Lifecare Ambulance in Elyria, Ohio. He is also pursuing a M.S. in Biomedical Engineering at Cleveland State University (he’s expected to finish in 2019). Note: LeMieux holds 9 patents most of which are related to an Electrical Energy Generator. New episodes of Shark Tank (Season 10, 2018) air Sundays at 9 pm on ABC.
