Growing up on a South Dakota farm, Doug Shoemaker used to think how great it would be to drive around all day in a vehicle that ran on sunshine.

Fast-forward to today: Doug's retired from his job at Xcel Energy (where he was a service and construction vehicle fleet manager) and he's on the board of the Minnesota Renewable Energy Society, helping to organize and plan next month's Minnesota Solar Tour and getting ready to talk with folks about renewable energy at the Lake Superior Harvest Festival September 12.
