We provide energy-related products and services that grow our economy, protect the environment, support our communities and help customers meet their energy needs. We are leading the decarbonization of the U.S. economy with our goal to reach Real Zero carbon emissions from our operations by 2045 while improving customer affordability and reliability. Are you interested in creating a cleaner environment for future generations? Join our world-class, innovative team today.


Position Specific Description

NextEra Mobility is focused on accelerating fleet electrification by offering integrated solutions spanning charging, renewables, resiliency, vehicle conversion and fleet as a service. The Land Project Manager will be responsible for acquiring optimal sites for EV charging projects nationwide, including initial land strategy, siting/origination, early-stage site development, and contract execution. This role will enable the deployment of a nationwide charging network for commercial electric vehicles and H2 fuel cell vehicles.


In this role, you will lead development projects through site identification, site evaluation, landowner negotiations, site acquisition, and project approval. You will oversee cross-functional teams across the NextEra Energy Resources organization. In daily coordination with subject matter experts (e.g. environmental, real estate legal, engineering), you will evaluate environmental issues, service capacity, local zoning and permitting, and site technical adequacy; conduct landowner outreach and secure landowner commitments; and negotiate key commercial terms and execute real estate agreements.


You will lead the process and progression of new and existing projects to ensure the mobility business cultivates a pipeline of viable, competitive sites for fleet electrification. You will work closely with the origination team to understand business needs and with late-stage developers to transition projects into detailed design and project development. You will also be responsible for presenting regular updates to leadership.

To be successful in this role, the following qualities are a must:

  • Practical experience with real estate acquisition and land/title matters—including establishing/managing landowner relationships, negotiating lease and purchase options and agreements, and working with third-party brokers
  • Development experience in the energy space—including utility service connections, zoning regulations, permitting
  • Project management experience—including schedule-, risk-, and stakeholder-management
  • Outstanding communication skills (written/verbal), attention to detail, and creative problem-solving
  • Ability to adapt and re-prioritize as necessary
  • Self-motivation and a strong work ethic
  • Willingness to travel—travel needs will fluctuate depending on department/project requirements, expected at 30-50%
  • Valid drivers license


Further, experience in these areas is preferred:

  • Technical experience using GIS tools and Google Earth
  • Community outreach experience
  • EV / H2 industry, and/or renewable energy, distributed energy resources (DER), energy storage, fuel cells, and/or other onsite generation


Location for this role can be remote, and you will travel across our sites extensively.


The energy and transportation electrification markets are complex, fast-paced and constantly changing. We truly have the best team in the business and are looking for hard working, detail oriented and intelligent leaders to join our team.
