Our Vision | Nokomis Energy is a Midwest based provider of clean energy solutions helping communities, companies and utilities take advantage of the Energy Transition. We are hiring a Business Development Director to help develop 1-20MW solar and storage solutions across US distribution grids.

How You’re Helping the Transition | At Nokomis, we recognize that with increasing frequency, communities, businesses, and organizations are seeking to become active participants in transitioning our energy system to cleaner, cheaper and more local sources. Our Business Development Director plays an integral role in understanding customer goals and leveraging the Nokomis team to deliver clean, low-cost energy solutions. On any given day you will be pursuing site control and offtake contracts for solar and storage solutions with land owners, businesses, schools, municipalities, distributed utilities, and any combination of groups that seek to leverage their community to support the energy transition.    

Why You’re a Good Fit | Our ideal candidates may have experience in land acquisition contracting, opportunity and account management, technical and financial feasibility assessments, as well as community and corporate relationship management.
