“Here at Dakota Lithium I have the opportunity to change how our community uses energy. The future of electric cars and practical renewable energy is here and for every innovation there is a battery behind it. Dakota Lithium is one of a very short list of companies that builds batteries in the United States. In addition, DL has research partnerships that allow us to lead the industry in long lifespan batteries. I joined the company to help tell the human story behind the energy revolution, to help power your passions, and to help build the sustainable future our children deserve.”
