The Project Development Associate will provide project management assistance and task management supporting the development of renewable energy projects from site identification through construction for both company projects and client initiatives. The role requires strong verbal and written communication skills, attention to detail, and the ability to oscillate between a strategic, 10,000 feet view and executing project details.

  • Participate in the preparation of proposals that are submitted to power purchasers including utilities, community choice aggregators, and commercial & industrial customers
  • Support internal reporting and project tracking efforts
  • Additional project-related duties as required to support the Company’s project development efforts

Minimum qualifications:

  • Strong interest in renewable energy
  • Persistent curiosity and high attention to detail
  • Ability to work both independently and as a member of a team
  • Ability to independently manage multiple assignments, determine and set job task priorities and work with limited direct supervision
  • Bachelor’s degree in Business, Engineering, Environmental Sciences, or a related field
  • 1 – 2 years of progressively responsible project management or development experience in energy or a related industry
  • Knowledge of ESRI ArcGIS and Google Earth software preferred
  • Proficient knowledge of Microsoft Office software
  • Strong organizational and time-management skills
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Excellent interpersonal and teamwork skills
  • Ability and willingness to travel and work overtime as needed
  • Desire to produce quality work that brings value to the team and company and a willingness to take the “extra-step” in delivering the highest quality work product (i.e., a desire for excellence)
  • Willingness to learn and approach your work in the spirit of continuous improvement

Interested candidates should send resume and cover letter to: careers@advanceenergyllc.com.
