NEXTERA ENERGY CAPITAL HOLDINGS, INC.
OFFICER’S CERTIFICATE
Creating the Series I Debentures due September 1, 2021

Aldo Portales, Assistant Treasurer of NextEra Energy Capital Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”), pursuant to the authority granted in the accompanying Board Resolutions (all capitalized terms used herein which are not defined herein, in Appendix A or in Exhibit A hereto, but which are defined in the Indenture referred to below, shall have the meanings specified in the Indenture), and pursuant to Sections 201 and 301 of the Indenture, does hereby certify to The Bank of New York Mellon (the “Trustee”), as Trustee under the Indenture (For Unsecured Debt Securities) dated as of June 1, 1999 between the Company and the Trustee, as amended (the “Indenture”), that:
1.The securities to be issued under the Indenture in accordance with this certificate shall be designated “Series I Debentures due September 1, 2021” (the “Debentures of the Thirty-First Series”) and shall be issued in substantially the form set forth in Exhibit A hereto.
2.The Debentures of the Thirty-First Series shall mature and the principal shall be due and payable, together with all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, on the Stated Maturity Date. The “Stated Maturity Date” means September 1, 2021.
3.The Debentures of the Thirty-First Series shall bear interest initially at the rate of 1.65% per annum (the “Interest Rate”) from, and including, August 8, 2016, to, but excluding, the earlier of (i) the Stated Maturity Date and (ii) the Reset Effective Date. In the event of a Successful Remarketing of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series, the Interest Rate will be determined by the Remarketing Agents and reset at the Reset Rate effective from the Reset Effective Date, as set forth in Paragraph 4 below. If the Interest Rate is so reset, the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series will bear interest at the Reset Rate from, and including, the Reset Effective Date until the principal thereof and accrued and unpaid interest thereon, if any, is paid or duly made available for payment and shall bear interest, to the extent permitted by law, compounded quarterly, on any overdue principal and payment of interest at the Interest Rate to, but excluding, the Reset Effective Date and compounded semi-annually, on any overdue principal and payment of interest at the Reset Rate thereafter. The “Reset Effective Date shall mean (i) in connection with a Successful Remarketing of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series during the Period for Early Remarketing, the third Business Day immediately following the Remarketing Date on which the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series included in such Remarketing are successfully remarketed, unless the Remarketing is successful within five Business Days of the next succeeding Quarterly Interest Payment Date, in which case such Quarterly Interest Payment Date will be the Reset Effective Date, and (ii) in connection with a Successful Remarketing of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series during the Final Three-Day Remarketing Period, September 1, 2019.
Interest on a Debenture of the Thirty-First Series shall be payable initially quarterly in arrears on March 1, June 1, September 1 and December 1 of each year (each a “Quarterly Interest Payment Date”), commencing September 1, 2016, to the Person in whose name such Debenture of the Thirty-First Series, or any predecessor Debenture of the Thirty-First Series, is registered on the books and records of the Security Registrar at the close of business on the relevant Regular Record Date for such Quarterly Interest Payment Date. Following a Successful Remarketing of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series, interest on a Debenture of the Thirty-First Series shall be payable (i) on the Reset Effective Date and (ii) semi-annually in arrears on the Subsequent







Interest Payment Dates (together with the Quarterly Interest Payment Dates and the Reset Effective Date, the “Interest Payment Dates”), in each case to the Person in whose name such Debenture of the Thirty-First Series, or any predecessor Debenture of the Thirty-First Series, is registered on the books and records of the Security Registrar at the close of business on the relevant Regular Record Date. “Subsequent Interest Payment Date” shall mean, following the Reset Effective Date, each semi-annual interest payment date established by the Company on the Remarketing Date on which the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series included in the Remarketing are successfully remarketed.
Interest payments will include interest accrued from and including the immediately preceding Interest Payment Date or, in the case of the first Interest Payment Date, from and including August 8, 2016, to, but excluding, such Interest Payment Date.
The amount of interest payable on the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months. The amount of interest payable for any period shorter than a full quarterly or semi-annual period for which interest is computed shall be computed on the basis of the number of days in such period using 30-day calendar months. In the event that any Interest Payment Date is not a Business Day, then payment of interest payable on such date will be made on the next succeeding day which is a Business Day (and without any interest or other payment in respect of such delay), except that, if such Business Day is in the next succeeding calendar year, then such payment shall be made on the immediately preceding Business Day, in each case, with the same force and effect as if made on such Interest Payment Date.
Pursuant to the Remarketing Agreement to be entered into between the Company, Goldman, Sachs & Co., Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, and Mizuho Securities USA Inc. (collectively referred to as the “Remarketing Agents”), and The Bank of New York Mellon, as Purchase Contract Agent (the “Purchase Contract Agent”), as amended or supplemented from time to time (the “Remarketing Agreement”), and as described below, the Company (i) during the Period for Early Remarketing may, at its option, and in its sole discretion, select one or more Three-Day Remarketing Periods consisting of three successive Remarketing Dates on each of which it shall cause the Remarketing Agents to remarket, in whole (but not in part), (A) the Pledged Debentures of the Thirty-First Series, and (B) any Separate Debentures of the Thirty-First Series of Holders who have elected in the manner set forth in the Purchase Contract Agreement, the Pledge Agreement and the Remarketing Agreement to have such Separate Debentures of the Thirty-First Series so remarketed, for settlement on the third Business Day following the Remarketing Date on which a Successful Remarketing occurs, unless the Successful Remarketing occurs within five Business Days of the next succeeding Quarterly Interest Payment Date, in which case such settlement will occur on such Quarterly Interest Payment Date and (ii) if there has not been a Successful Remarketing during the Period for Early Remarketing, if any, shall cause the Remarketing Agents to remarket, in whole (but not in part), on each Remarketing Date during the Final Three-Day Remarketing Period, (A) the Pledged Debentures of the Thirty-First Series of Corporate Unit holders who have failed to notify the Purchase Contract Agent, on or prior to the seventh Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, of their intention to settle such Purchase Contracts in cash, and (B) any Separate Debentures of the Thirty-First Series of Holders who have elected in the manner set forth in the Purchase Contract Agreement, the Pledge Agreement and the Remarketing Agreement to have their Debentures of the Thirty-First Series so remarketed, for settlement on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date. The Company may select a Three-Day Remarketing Period during the Period for Early Remarketing by designating each of the three sequential Remarketing Dates to comprise such Three-Day Remarketing Period; provided, that no

Remarketing Date during the Period for Early Remarketing shall occur earlier than the fifth Business Day prior to March 1, 2019 nor later than the ninth Business Day prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date.
The Company will announce any Remarketing on the sixth Business Day immediately preceding the first Remarketing Date of a Three‑Day Remarketing Period during the Period for Early Remarketing and, for the Final Three‑Day Remarketing Period, the Company will announce the remarketing of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series on the third Business Day immediately preceding the first Remarketing Date of the Final Three‑Day Remarketing Period. Each such announcement (each a “Remarketing Announcement”) on each such date (each a “Remarketing Announcement Date”). The Remarketing Announcement shall specify the following:
(i)    (A)    if the Remarketing Announcement relates to a Remarketing to occur during the Period for Early Remarketing, that the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series may be remarketed on any and all of the sixth, seventh and eighth Business Days following such Remarketing Announcement Date;
(B)    if the Remarketing Announcement relates to a Remarketing to occur during the Final Three-Day Remarketing Period, that the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series may be remarketed on any and all of the third, fourth and fifth Business Days following such Remarketing Announcement Date;
(ii)    (A)    if the Remarketing Announcement relates to a Remarketing to occur during the Period for Early Remarketing, that the Reset Effective Date will be the third Business Day following the Successful Remarketing Date, unless the Successful Remarketing Date is within five Business Days of the next succeeding Quarterly Interest Payment Date in which case such Quarterly Interest Payment Date will be the Reset Effective Date; or
(B)    if the Remarketing Announcement relates to a Remarketing to occur during the Final Three-Day Remarketing Period, that the Reset Effective Date will be September 1, 2019 if there is a Successful Remarketing;
(iii)    that the Reset Rate and Subsequent Interest Payment Dates for the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series will be established on the Successful Remarketing Date and effective on and after the Reset Effective Date;
(iv)    (A)    if the Remarketing Announcement relates to a Remarketing to occur during the Period for Early Remarketing, that the Reset Rate will equal the interest rate on the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series that will enable the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series included in the Remarketing to be remarketed at a price equal to at least 100% of the Remarketing Treasury Portfolio Purchase Price plus the Separate Debentures Purchase Price plus the Remarketing Fee (the “Remarketing Price”); or
(B)    if the Remarketing Announcement relates to a Remarketing to occur during the Final Three-Day Remarketing Period, that the Reset Rate will equal the interest rate on the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series that will enable the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series included in the Remarketing to be remarketed at a price equal to at least 100% of their aggregate principal amount plus the Remarketing Fee (the “Contract Settlement Price”); and

(v)    the Remarketing Fee.
On the Business Day immediately following the Remarketing Announcement Date, the Company will issue a press release through any appropriate news agency, including Bloomberg News and the Dow Jones Newswires, containing the Remarketing Announcement and publish such Remarketing Announcement on the Company’s website or through another public medium as the Company may use at the time. In addition, the Company will request, not later than ten (10) Business Days prior to each Remarketing Announcement Date, that the Depositary notify its participants holding Debentures of the Thirty-First Series, Corporate Units and Treasury Units of the Remarketing.
Each Holder of Separate Debentures of the Thirty-First Series may elect to have some or all of the Separate Debentures of the Thirty-First Series held by such Holder remarketed in any Remarketing. A Holder making such an election must, pursuant to the Purchase Contract Agreement, the Pledge Agreement and the Remarketing Agreement, notify the Custodial Agent and deliver such Separate Debentures of the Thirty-First Series to the Custodial Agent on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the second Business Day, but no earlier than the fifth Business Day, immediately preceding the first Remarketing Date of any Three-Day Remarketing Period. Any such notice and delivery may not be conditioned upon the level at which the Reset Rate is established in the Remarketing. Any such notice and delivery may be withdrawn on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the second Business Day immediately preceding the first Remarketing Date of the applicable Three-Day Remarketing Period in accordance with the provisions set forth in the Pledge Agreement. Any such notice and delivery not withdrawn by such time will be irrevocable with respect to such Remarketing. Promptly after 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on the Business Day immediately preceding the first Remarketing Date of the applicable Three-Day Remarketing Period, the Custodial Agent, based on the notices and deliveries received by it prior to such time and pursuant to the Pledge Agreement, shall notify the Remarketing Agents of the principal amount of Separate Debentures of the Thirty-First Series to be tendered for Remarketing and shall cause such Separate Debentures of the Thirty-First Series to be presented to the Remarketing Agents. Debentures of the Thirty-First Series that are a component of Corporate Units will be deemed tendered for Remarketing and will be remarketed in accordance with the terms of the Remarketing Agreement.
Unless and until there has been a Successful Remarketing, on each Remarketing Date during a Three-Day Remarketing Period, the Company shall cause the Remarketing Agents to use their commercially reasonable efforts to remarket the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series that the Collateral Agent and the Custodial Agent shall have notified the Remarketing Agents have been tendered for, or otherwise are to be included in, the Remarketing, at a price per $1,000 principal amount of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series such that the aggregate price for the aggregate principal amount of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series being remarketed on that date will be approximately (i) if the Reset Effective Date is not the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, the Remarketing Price or (ii) if the Reset Effective Date is the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, the Contract Settlement Price.
In the event of a Successful Remarketing, on the Remarketing Date the Company will request the Depositary to notify its participants holding the Separate Debentures of the Thirty-First Series, no later than the Business Day next succeeding the Successful Remarketing Date, of the Reset Rate, the Subsequent Interest Payment Dates and related Regular Record Dates for the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series. If a Successful Remarketing does not occur during a Three‑Day Remarketing Period, the Company will cause a notice of such Failed Remarketing to be published on the Business Day following the last of the three Remarketing Dates comprising the Three‑Day


-4-





Remarketing Period (which notice, in the event of a Failed Remarketing on the Final Remarketing Date, shall be published not later than 9:00 a.m., New York City time, and shall include the procedures that must be followed if a Holder of Separate Debentures of the Thirty-First Series wishes to exercise its right to put such Separate Debentures of the Thirty-First Series to the Company), in each case, by making a timely release to any appropriate news agency, including Bloomberg News and the Dow Jones Newswires.
In accordance with the Depositary’s procedures, on the Reset Effective Date, the transactions described above with respect to each Debenture of the Thirty-First Series tendered for purchase and sold in such Remarketing shall be executed through the Depositary, and the accounts of the respective Depositary participants shall be debited and credited and such Debentures of the Thirty-First Series delivered by book entry as necessary to effect purchases and sales of such Debentures of the Thirty-First Series. The Depositary shall make payment in accordance with its procedures.
In no event shall the aggregate price for the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series in a Remarketing be less than a price (the “Minimum Price”) equal to (i) in the case of a Remarketing during the Period for Early Remarketing, 100% of the sum of the Remarketing Treasury Portfolio Purchase Price and the Separate Debentures Purchase Price or (ii) in the case of a Remarketing during the Final Three-Day Remarketing Period, 100% of the aggregate principal amount of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series being remarketed. A remarketing attempt on any Remarketing Date will be deemed unsuccessful if the (i) Remarketing Agents are unable to remarket the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series for an aggregate price that is at least equal to the Minimum Price; or (ii) if a condition precedent to such Remarketing is not fulfilled or, if subject to waiver, waived.
The right of each Holder of Debentures of the Thirty-First Series that are included in Corporate Units to have such Debentures of the Thirty-First Series, and of each Holder of Separate Debentures of the Thirty-First Series to have any Separate Debentures of the Thirty-First Series (together, the “Remarketed Debentures of the Thirty-First Series”), remarketed and sold in any Remarketing, and the obligation of the Company to conduct a Remarketing, shall be subject to the following: (i) the Remarketing Agents have conducted a Remarketing pursuant to the terms of the Remarketing Agreement, (ii) a Special Event Redemption or Mandatory Redemption has not occurred or will not occur prior to such Remarketing Date or the Reset Effective Date, (iii) the Remarketing Agents are able to find a purchaser or purchasers for Remarketed Debentures of the Thirty-First Series at the Minimum Price, and (iv) the purchaser or purchasers deliver the purchase price therefor to the Remarketing Agents as and when required.
None of the Trustee, the Company or the Remarketing Agents shall be obligated in any case to provide funds to make payment upon tender of Debentures of the Thirty-First Series for Remarketing.
Remarketing Treasury Portfolio” shall mean
(a)    U.S. Treasury securities (or principal or interest strips thereof) that mature on or prior to August 31, 2019 in an aggregate amount at maturity equal to the principal amount of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series that are a component of the Corporate Units;
(b)    if the Reset Effective Date occurs prior to June 1, 2019, with respect to the Quarterly Interest Payment Dates on the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series that



-5-





would have occurred on June 1, 2019 and September 1, 2019, U.S. Treasury securities (or principal or interest strips thereof) that mature on or prior to (i) May 31, 2019 (in connection with the Quarterly Interest Payment Date that would have occurred on June 1, 2019) and (ii) August 31, 2019 (in connection with the Quarterly Interest Payment Date that would have occurred on September 1, 2019), each in an aggregate amount at maturity equal to the aggregate interest payments that would be due on June 1, 2019 and September 1, 2019, respectively, on the principal amount of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series that would have been a component of the Corporate Units assuming no Remarketing and no reset of the Interest Rate on the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series and assuming that interest on the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series accrued from the Reset Effective Date to, but excluding, June 1, 2019 and from June 1, 2019 to, but excluding, September 1, 2019, respectively; and
(c)    if the Reset Effective Date occurs on or after June 1, 2019, with respect to the Quarterly Interest Payment Date on the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series that would have occurred on September 1, 2019, U.S. Treasury securities (or principal or interest strips thereof) that mature on or prior to August 31, 2019 in an aggregate amount at maturity equal to the aggregate interest payment that would be due on September 1, 2019 on the principal amount of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series that would have been a component of the Corporate Units assuming no Remarketing and no reset of the Interest Rate on the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series and assuming that interest on the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series accrued from the Reset Effective Date to, but excluding, September 1, 2019.
If, on the applicable Remarketing Date during the Period for Early Remarketing, U.S. Treasury securities (or principal or interest strips thereof) that are to be included in the Remarketing Treasury Portfolio have a yield that is less than zero, then instead, at the Company’s option, an amount of cash equal to the aggregate principal amount at maturity of the applicable U.S. Treasury securities (or principal or interest strips thereof) described above will be substituted for the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series that are components of the Corporate Units and will be pledged to NextEra Energy through the Collateral Agent to secure the Corporate Unit holders’ obligations to purchase common stock, $0.01 par value per share, of NextEra Energy (the “Common Stock”) under the related Purchase Contracts. In such case, references to “U.S. Treasury securities (or principal or interest strips thereof)” in connection with the Remarketing Treasury Portfolio will, thereafter, be deemed to be references to such amount of cash.
Remarketing Treasury Portfolio Purchase Price shall mean the lowest aggregate price quoted by a primary U.S. government securities dealer in New York City to the Quotation Agent on the applicable Remarketing Date during the Period for Early Remarketing for the purchase of the Remarketing Treasury Portfolio for settlement on the Reset Effective Date, provided, that if the Remarketing Treasury Portfolio consists of cash, “Remarketing Treasury Portfolio Purchase Price” means an amount of cash equal to the aggregate principal amount at maturity of the U.S. Treasury securities (or principal or interest strips thereof) that would have otherwise been components of the Remarketing Treasury Portfolio. “Quotation Agent” means any primary U.S. government securities dealer in New York City selected by the Company.
4.In connection with each Remarketing, the Remarketing Agents shall determine the reset interest rate (rounded to the nearest one-thousandth (0.001) of one percent per annum) that they believe will, when applied to the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series, enable the aggregate principal amount of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series being remarketed on such date to be sold at an aggregate price equal to at least (i) if the Reset Effective Date is not the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, the


-6-





Remarketing Price or (ii) if the Reset Effective Date is the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, the Contract Settlement Price. The reset interest rate established on the Remarketing Date on which a Successful Remarketing occurs shall be the “Reset Rate.”
Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the Reset Rate shall not exceed the maximum rate permitted by applicable law and the Remarketing Agents shall have no obligation to determine whether there is any limitation under applicable law on the Reset Rate or, if there is any such limitation, the maximum permissible Reset Rate on the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series and it shall rely solely upon written notice from the Company (which the Company agrees to provide prior to the eighth Business Day before the first Remarketing Date of any Three-Day Remarketing Period) as to whether or not there is any such limitation and, if so, the maximum permissible Reset Rate.
In the event of a Failed Remarketing or if no Debentures of the Thirty-First Series are included in Corporate Units and none of the Holders of the Separate Debentures of the Thirty-First Series elect to have their Debentures of the Thirty-First Series remarketed in any Remarketing, the Interest Rate on the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series will not be reset and will continue to be the Interest Rate.
In the event of a Successful Remarketing, the Interest Rate shall be reset at the Reset Rate as determined by the Remarketing Agents under the Remarketing Agreement. The Reset Rate shall be effective from and after the Reset Effective Date.
5.Each installment of interest on a Debenture of the Thirty-First Series shall be payable to the Person in whose name such Debenture is registered at the close of business on the “Regular Record Date” for such interest installment, which (a) as long as all of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series remain in certificated form and are held by the Purchase Contract Agent, or are held in book-entry only form, will be one Business Day prior to the corresponding Interest Payment Date, or (b) if the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series remain in certificated form, but all are not held by the Purchase Contract Agent, or are not held in book-entry only form, will be at least one Business Day but not more than sixty (60) Business Days prior to such corresponding Interest Payment Date, as selected by the Company; provided that, unless the Purchase Contracts described in the Purchase Contract Agreement have been terminated, such Regular Record Date must be the same as the record date for payment of distributions and Contract Adjustment Payments for the Corporate Units described in the Purchase Contract Agreement; and provided further that interest payable on the Stated Maturity Date will be paid to the Person to whom principal is paid. The Security Registrar may, but shall not be required to, register the transfer of Debentures of the Thirty-First Series during the ten (10) days immediately preceding an Interest Payment Date. Any installment of interest on the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series not punctually paid or duly provided for will forthwith cease to be payable to the Holders of such Debentures of the Thirty-First Series on such Regular Record Date, and may be paid to the Persons in whose name the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series are registered at the close of business on a Special Record Date to be fixed by the Trustee for the payment of such Defaulted Interest. Notice of such Defaulted Interest and Special Record Date shall be given to the Holders of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series not less than ten (10) days prior to such Special Record Date, or may be paid at any time in any other lawful manner not inconsistent with the requirements of any securities exchange on which the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series may be listed, and upon such notice as may be required by such exchange, all as more fully provided in the Indenture.
6.The principal and each installment of interest on the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series shall be payable at, and registration and registration of transfers and exchanges in respect of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series may be effectuated at, the office or agency of the Company in New



-7-





York City, New York; provided, that payment of interest may be made at the option of the Company by check mailed to the address of the Persons entitled thereto or by wire transfer to an account designated by the Person entitled thereto. Notices and demands to or upon the Company in respect of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series may be served at the office or agency of the Company in New York City, New York. The Corporate Trust Office of the Trustee will initially be the agency of the Company for such payment, registration, registration of transfers and exchanges and service of notices and demands, and the Company hereby appoints the Trustee as its agent for all such purposes, including as the Security Registrar and the Paying Agent for the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series; provided, however, that the Company reserves the right to change, by one or more Officer’s Certificates, any such office or agency and such agent.
7.If a Special Event shall occur and be continuing, the Company may, at its option, redeem the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series in whole (but not in part) at any time (“Special Event Redemption”) at a Redemption Price equal to, for each Debenture of the Thirty-First Series, the Redemption Amount plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, thereon to, but excluding, the date of redemption (the “Special Event Redemption Date”). If the Special Event Redemption occurs prior to a Successful Remarketing of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series, or if the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series are not successfully remarketed, in each case prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, the Redemption Price payable with respect to the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series that are a component of the Corporate Units at the time of the Special Event Redemption will be paid to the Collateral Agent under the Pledge Agreement dated as of August 1, 2016 by and between NextEra Energy, Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as Collateral Agent (the “Collateral Agent), Custodial Agent (the “Custodial Agent”) and Securities Intermediary, and The Bank of New York Mellon, as Purchase Contract Agent (the “Pledge Agreement”), on the Special Event Redemption Date on or prior to 12:30 p.m., New York City time, by check or wire transfer in immediately available funds at such place and to such account as may be designated by the Collateral Agent and the Collateral Agent will purchase the Special Event Treasury Portfolio on behalf of the holders of Corporate Units and remit the remainder of the Redemption Price, if any, to the Purchase Contract Agent for payment to the holders. Thereafter, the applicable ownership interests in the Special Event Treasury Portfolio will be substituted for the Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures of the Thirty-First Series and will be pledged to NextEra Energy, through the Collateral Agent, to secure the Corporate Unit holders’ obligations to purchase Common Stock under the Purchase Contracts.
Special Event” means either a Tax Event or an Accounting Event.
Accounting Event” means the receipt by the audit committee of NextEra Energy’s Board of Directors (or, if there is no such committee, by such Board of Directors) of a written report in accordance with Statement on Auditing Standards (“SAS”) No. 97, “Amendment to SAS No. 50-Reports on the Application of Accounting Principles,” from NextEra Energy’s independent auditors, provided at the request of NextEra Energy management, to the effect that, as a result of a change in accounting rules that becomes effective after August 8, 2016, NextEra Energy must either (a) account for the Purchase Contracts as derivatives or otherwise mark‑to‑market or measure the fair value of all or any portion of the Purchase Contracts with changes appearing in NextEra Energy’s income statement) or (b) account for the Equity Units using the if‑converted method, and that such accounting treatment will cease to apply upon redemption of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series.
Tax Event” means the receipt by the Company of an opinion of nationally recognized independent tax counsel experienced in such matters (which may be Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP or Squire Patton Boggs (US) LLP) to the effect that there is more than an insubstantial risk that interest payable by the Company on the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series would not be

(B)an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that, as a result of (i) the receipt by the Company from, or the publication by, the Internal Revenue Service of a ruling or (ii) a change in law occurring after the date of this certificate, the Holders of such Debentures of the Thirty-First Series, or the applicable portion of the principal amount thereof, will not recognize income, gain or loss for U.S. federal income tax purposes as a result of the satisfaction and discharge of the Company’s indebtedness in respect thereof and will be subject to U.S. federal income tax on the same amounts, at the same times and in the same manner as if such satisfaction and discharge had not been effectuated.

(C)the commencement by the Guarantor of a voluntary case or proceeding under any applicable Federal or State bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law or of any other case or proceeding seeking for the Guarantor to be adjudicated bankrupt or insolvent, or the consent by the Guarantor to the entry of a decree or order for relief in respect of itself in a case or proceeding under any applicable Federal or State bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law or to the commencement of any bankruptcy or insolvency case or proceeding against the Guarantor, or the filing by the Guarantor of a petition or answer or consent seeking reorganization or relief under any applicable Federal or State bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law, or the consent by the Guarantor to the filing of such petition or to the appointment of or taking possession by a custodian, receiver, liquidator, assignee, trustee, sequestrator or similar official of the Guarantor or of any substantial part of its property, or the making by the Guarantor of an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the admission by the Guarantor in writing of its inability to pay its debts generally as they become due, or the authorization of such action by the Board of Directors of the Guarantor.

If the Mandatory Redemption occurs (i) prior to September 1, 2019, if the Purchase Contracts have been previously or concurrently terminated, the Redemption Price will be equal to the principal amount of each Debenture of the Thirty-First Series; (ii) prior to September 1, 2019, if the Purchase Contracts have not been so previously or concurrently terminated, the Redemption Price will be equal to the Redemption Amount for each Debenture of the Thirty-First Series and such Redemption Price payable with respect to the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series that are a component of the Corporate Units at the time of the Mandatory Redemption will be distributed to the Collateral Agent as described in Paragraph 7 with respect to the Special Event Redemption; or (iii) on or after September 1, 2019, the Redemption Price will be equal to the principal amount

(A)the consolidation of the Guarantor with or merger of the Guarantor into any other Person, or the conveyance or other transfer or lease by the Guarantor of its properties and assets substantially as an entirety to any Person, unless
(i)the Person formed by such consolidation or into which the Guarantor is merged or the Person which acquires by conveyance or other transfer, or which leases, the properties and assets of the Guarantor substantially as an entirety shall be a Person organized and existing under the laws of the U.S., any State thereof or the District of Columbia, and shall expressly assume the obligations of the Guarantor under the Guarantee Agreement; and
(ii)immediately after giving effect to such transaction, no Event of Default and no event which, after notice or lapse of time or both, would become an Event of Default, shall have occurred and be continuing; and
(B)the failure of the Company to redeem the Outstanding Debentures of the Thirty-First Series if and as required by Paragraph 11 hereof.
13.If a Guarantor Event occurs and the Company is not required to redeem the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series pursuant to Paragraph 11 hereof, the Company will provide to the Trustee and the Holders of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series annual and quarterly reports containing the information that the Company would be required to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission under Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 if it were subject to the reporting requirements of either of those Sections; provided, that if the Company is, at that time, subject to the reporting requirements of either of those Sections, the filing of annual and quarterly reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to either of those Sections will satisfy the foregoing requirement.
14.The Debentures of the Thirty-First Series that are a component of the Corporate Units will be issued in certificated form, will be in denominations of $1,000 and integral multiples of $1,000, without coupons; provided, however, that upon release by the Collateral Agent of Debentures of the Thirty-First Series underlying the Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures of the Thirty-First Series pledged to secure the Corporate Units holders’ obligations under the related Purchase Contracts (other than any release of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series in connection with the creation of Treasury Units, an Early Settlement, a Fundamental Change Early Settlement, or a Remarketing) the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series will be issuable in denominations of $50 principal amount and integral multiples thereof.
15.The Company reserves the right to require legends on Debentures of the Thirty-First Series as it may determine are necessary to ensure compliance with the securities laws of the United States and the states therein and any other applicable laws.
16.No service charge shall be made for the registration of transfer or exchange of the Debentures of the Thirty-First Series; provided, however, that the Company may require payment of a sum sufficient






-13-





to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with such exchange or transfer.

, or registered assigns, the principal sum of ____________________ Dollars, as set forth on Schedule I hereto, on the Stated Maturity Date, and to pay interest on said principal amount from August 8, 2016 or from the most recent Interest Payment Date to which interest has been paid or duly provided for, quarterly in arrears on March 1, June 1, September 1 and December 1 of each year (each a “Quarterly Interest Payment Date”), commencing September 1, 2016, at the rate of 1.65% per annum to, but excluding, the Reset Effective Date, if any, and thereafter semi-annually in arrears on the Subsequent Interest Payment Dates (together with the Quarterly Interest Payment Dates and the Reset Effective Date, the “Interest Payment Dates”) at the Reset Rate, in each case on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30‑day months, until the principal hereof is paid or duly provided for or made available for payment, and (to the extent that the payment of such interest shall be legally enforceable) to pay interest, compounded quarterly, at the rate of 1.65% per annum on any overdue principal and payment of interest to, but excluding, the Reset Effective Date, if any, and thereafter, compounded semi-annually, at the Reset Rate, if any. Interest on the Securities of this series will accrue from and including August 8, 2016, to, but excluding, the first Interest Payment Date, and thereafter will accrue from and including the last Interest Payment Date to which interest has been paid or duly provided for.
No interest will accrue on the Securities of this series with respect to the day on which the Securities of this series mature. In the event that any Interest Payment Date is not a Business Day, then payment of interest payable on such date will be made on the next succeeding day which is a Business Day (and without any interest or other payment in respect of such delay), except that, if such Business Day is in the next succeeding calendar year, then such payment shall be made on the immediately preceding Business Day, in each case, with the same force and effect as if made on the Interest Payment Date. The interest so payable, and punctually paid or duly provided for, on any Interest Payment Date

Any such interest not punctually paid or duly provided for will forthwith cease to be payable to the Person who is the Holder of this Security on such Regular Record Date and may be paid to the Person in whose name this Security, or any Predecessor Security, is registered at the close of business on a Special Record Date to be fixed by the Trustee for the payment of such Defaulted Interest, notice of which shall be given to Holders of Securities of this series not less than ten (10) days prior to such Special Record Date, or may be paid at any time in any other lawful manner not inconsistent with the requirements of any securities exchange on which the Securities of this series may be listed, and upon such notice as may be required by such exchange, all as more fully provided in the Indenture.

This Security is one of the series designated on the face hereof.
Unless an earlier Special Event Redemption or Mandatory Redemption has occurred, this Security shall mature and the principal amount thereof shall be due and payable together with all accrued and unpaid interest thereon on the Stated Maturity Date. The “Stated Maturity Date” shall mean September 1, 2021.
If a Special Event shall occur and be continuing, the Company may, at its option, redeem the Securities of this series in whole, but not in part, at any time, at a price per Security equal to the Redemption Price as set forth in the Officer’s Certificate.
If this Security is not a component of Corporate Units, the Holder of this Security may, on or prior to the second Business Day, but no earlier than the fifth Business Day, immediately preceding the first Remarketing Date of any Three-Day Remarketing Period, elect to have this Security remarketed, by delivering this Security, along with a notice of such election to Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as Collateral Agent and Custodial Agent, for Remarketing in accordance with the Pledge Agreement dated as of August 1, 2016 between NextEra Energy, Inc., The Bank of New York Mellon and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as Collateral Agent, Custodial Agent and Securities Intermediary.

The Put Price will be paid to such Holder on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date. The “Put Price” will be equal to the principal amount of such Securities, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the Purchase Contract Settlement Date.
(B) If there has not been a Successful Remarketing prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, each Holder of a 5% undivided beneficial ownership interest in $1,000 principal amount of Securities that is a component of a Corporate Unit (the “Applicable Ownership Interest in Securities”) will be deemed to have automatically exercised its Put Right, upon a Failed Remarketing during the Final Three-Day Remarketing Period, unless, on the second Business Day immediately prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, such Holder provides written notice to the Purchase Contract Agent of its intention to settle the related Purchase Contracts with separate cash and, on or prior to the



A - 5





Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, delivers to the Collateral Agent $50 in cash per each of such Holder’s related Purchase Contracts. As described in the Purchase Contract Agreement, each Holder of an Applicable Ownership Interest in Securities who has not settled the related Purchase Contracts with separate cash will be deemed to have elected to apply a portion of the Put Price equal to the principal amount of such Holder’s Applicable Ownership Interest in Securities against such Holder’s obligations to NextEra Energy under the related Purchase Contracts, thereby satisfying such obligations in full, and NextEra Energy will deliver to such Holder its common stock, $0.01 par value, issued in accordance with each related Purchase Contract. Any amount of the Put Price remaining following settlement of each such Purchase Contract will be delivered to the Purchase Contract Agent for the benefit of such Holder.
The Put Right of a Holder of the Securities of this series that are not part of a Corporate Unit shall only be exercisable upon delivery to the Company, on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the second Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, at the offices of the agency of the Company in New York City, the Securities of this series to be repaid with the form entitled “Option to Elect Repayment” on the reverse of or otherwise accompanying such Securities duly completed. Any such notice received by the Company shall be irrevocable. All questions as to the validity, eligibility (including time of receipt) and acceptance of the Securities of this series for repurchase shall be determined by the Company, whose determination shall be final and binding. The payment of the Put Price in respect of such Securities of this series shall be made, either through the Trustee or the Company acting as Paying Agent on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date.
The Securities of this series will be absolutely, irrevocably and unconditionally guaranteed as to payment of principal, interest and premium, if any, by NextEra Energy, as Guarantor (the “Guarantor”), pursuant to a Guarantee Agreement, dated as of June 1, 1999, between the Guarantor and The Bank of New York Mellon (as Guarantee Trustee) (the “Guarantee Agreement”). The following shall constitute “Guarantor Events” with respect to the Securities of this series:
(A)the failure of the Guarantee Agreement to be in full force and effect;
(B)the entry by a court having jurisdiction with respect to the Guarantor of (i) a decree or order for relief in respect of the Guarantor in an involuntary case or proceeding under any applicable Federal or State bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law or (ii) a decree or order adjudging the Guarantor bankrupt or insolvent, or approving as properly filed a petition by one or more entities other than the Guarantor seeking reorganization, arrangement, adjustment or composition of or in respect of the Guarantor under any applicable Federal or State bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law, or appointing a custodian, receiver, liquidator, assignee, trustee, sequestrator or other similar official for the Guarantor or for any substantial part of its property, or ordering the winding up or liquidation of its affairs, and any such decree or order for relief or any such other decree or order shall have remained unstayed and in effect for a period of ninety (90) consecutive days; or
(C)the commencement by the Guarantor of a voluntary case or proceeding under any applicable Federal or State bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law or of any other case or proceeding seeking for the Guarantor to be adjudicated bankrupt or insolvent, or the consent by the Guarantor to the entry of a decree or order for relief in respect of itself in a case or proceeding under any applicable Federal or State bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law or to the commencement of any bankruptcy or insolvency case or proceeding against the Guarantor, or the filing by the Guarantor of a petition or answer or consent seeking reorganization or relief under any applicable Federal or State bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law, or the consent by the Guarantor to the filing of such petition or to the appointment of or taking possession by a

custodian, receiver, liquidator, assignee, trustee, sequestrator or similar official of the Guarantor or of any substantial part of its property, or the making by the Guarantor of an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the admission by the Guarantor in writing of its inability to pay its debts generally as they become due, or the authorization of such action by the Board of Directors of the Guarantor.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Securities of this series, the Officer’s Certificate dated August 8, 2016 creating the Securities of this series, or the Indenture, the Company shall, if a Guarantor Event shall occur and be continuing, redeem all of the Outstanding Securities within sixty (60) days after the occurrence of such Guarantor Event (the “Mandatory Redemption”) at a Redemption Price specified below unless, within thirty (30) days after the occurrence of such Guarantor Event, Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services (a Standard & Poor’s Financial Services LLC business) and Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. (if the Securities of this series are then rated by those rating agencies, or, if the Securities of this series are then rated by only one of those rating agencies, then such rating agency, or, if the Securities of this series are not then rated by either one of those rating agencies but are then rated by one or more other nationally recognized rating agencies, then at least one of those other nationally recognized rating agencies) shall have reaffirmed in writing that, after giving effect to such Guarantor Event, the credit rating on the Securities of this series shall be investment grade (i.e. in one of the four highest categories, without regard to subcategories within such rating categories, of such rating agency).
If the Mandatory Redemption occurs (i) prior to September 1, 2019 and if the Purchase Contracts have been previously or concurrently terminated, the Redemption Price for each Security of this series will be equal to the principal amount of such Security; (ii) prior to September 1, 2019, if the Purchase Contracts have not been so previously or concurrently terminated, the Redemption Price will be equal to the Redemption Amount for each Security of this series and such Redemption Price payable with respect to such Security that is a component of the Corporate Units at the time of the Mandatory Redemption will be distributed to the Collateral Agent on the date of Mandatory Redemption in exchange for each Security of this series pledged to the Collateral Agent, as provided in the Officer’s Certificate; or (iii) on or after September 1, 2019, the Redemption Price will be equal to the principal amount of each Security; in each case, together with accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the date of Mandatory Redemption.
If a Guarantor Event occurs and the Company is not required to redeem the Securities of this series pursuant to the preceding paragraph, the Company will provide to the Trustee and the Holders of the Securities of this series annual and quarterly reports containing the information that the Company would be required to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission under Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 if it were subject to the reporting requirements of either of those Sections; provided, that if the Company is, at that time, subject to the reporting requirements of either of those Sections, the filing of annual and quarterly reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to either of those Sections will satisfy the foregoing requirement.
The Indenture contains provisions for defeasance at any time of the entire indebtedness of this Security upon compliance with certain conditions set forth in the Indenture, including the Officer’s Certificate described above.
If an Event of Default with respect to Securities of this series shall occur and be continuing, the principal of and interest on the Securities of this series may be declared due and payable in the manner and with the effect provided in the Indenture.
The Indenture permits, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modification of the rights and obligations of the Company and the rights of the Holders of the


A - 7





Securities of each series to be affected by such amendment to the Indenture at any time by the Company and the Trustee with the consent of the Holders of a majority in principal amount of the Securities at the time Outstanding of all series to be thus affected. The Indenture also contains provisions permitting the Holders of specified percentages in principal amount of the Securities of each series at the time Outstanding, on behalf of the Holders of all Securities of such series, to waive compliance by the Company with certain provisions of the Indenture and certain past defaults under the Indenture and their consequences. Any such consent or waiver by Holders of the specified percentages in principal amount of the Securities of this series shall be conclusive and binding upon all current and future Holders of this Security and of any Security issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange herefor or in lieu hereof, whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Security.
As provided in and subject to the provisions of the Indenture, the Holder of this Security shall not have the right to institute any proceeding with respect to the Indenture or for the appointment of a receiver or trustee or for any other remedy thereunder, unless such Holder shall have previously given the Trustee written notice of a continuing Event of Default with respect to the Securities of this series, the Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Securities of all series at the time Outstanding in respect of which an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing shall have made written request to the Trustee to institute proceedings in respect of such Event of Default as Trustee and offered the Trustee reasonable indemnity, and the Trustee shall not have received from the Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of Securities of all series at the time Outstanding in respect of which an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing a direction inconsistent with such request, and shall have failed to institute any such proceeding, for sixty (60) days after receipt of such notice, request and offer of indemnity. The foregoing shall not apply to any suit instituted by the Holder of this Security for the enforcement of any payment of principal hereof or any premium or interest hereon on or after the respective due dates expressed herein.
No reference herein to the Indenture and no provision of this Security or of the Indenture shall alter or impair the obligation of the Company, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of and any premium and interest on this Security at the times, place and rate, and in the coin or currency, herein prescribed.
The Securities of this series are issuable only in registered form without coupons in denominations of $1,000 and integral multiples thereof, except as provided for in the Officer’s Certificate. As provided in the Indenture and subject to certain limitations therein set forth and set forth in the Officer’s Certificate, Securities of this series are exchangeable for a like aggregate principal amount of Securities of this series and of like tenor and of authorized denominations, as requested by the Holder surrendering the same.
No service charge shall be made for any such registration of transfer or exchange, but the Company may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge payable in connection therewith.
The Company, the Trustee and any agent of the Company or the Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Security is registered as the absolute owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Security be overdue, and none of the Company, the Trustee or any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.
