  1. I’m a truck fan myself, there’s a start up company, Atlis Motor Vehicles, developing a 100% electric, full sized pickup with 4×4.
    Good on Wagner for making these changes. All of his trade-offs seem to be worth the rewards (including keeping more money in his pockets). Hopefully we can all make similar changes and make a bigger impact in reducing emissions.

  2. Congratulations, Mike! Nicely done. A great example of how an investment now can save money over time – and make a difference by reducing emissions.

  3. Well done Mike.
    Sometimes that labels we put on ourselves really don’t help us in life.
    If solar and plug-in vehicles save us money, they just make sense, no matter what label you put on yourself.

  4. Wagner is really a role model in practicing sustainability. What a impressive story. Can’t imagine how the world climate is going to be like if most people produce their own electricity using solar panels on their roof of houses and use “green” vehicles.

  5. Mike is an inspiration true! But I’d also like to send a shout out to Megan Woolhouse for structuring the article so well! Old Mike/New Mike. Brilliant!
