NRG Energy Moving HQ to HoustonJun 10, 2021
“We are proud to welcome NRG Energy’s corporate headquarters to Houston as they expand their already strong presence in the Lone Star State. With this move, NRG joins 50 other Fortune 500 companies headquartered in Texas, including 22 in the Houston area alone. America’s leading businesses continue to invest in Texas — and grow jobs in Texas — because of our welcoming business climate, low taxes, reasonable regulations, and our young, growing, and skilled workforce. I thank NRG Energy for designating Texas — the energy capital of the world — as their corporate headquarters, and I look forward to our continued partnership as we ensure a more prosperous future for all who call the Lone Star State home.” Official Statement, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott
The power company, NRG Energy, is disbanding from its Princeton, New Jersey headquarters and officially relocating to the Houston metro. This move has been a long time coming as Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner has been in talks with NRG president/ceo, Mauricio Gutierrez.
"Houston has committed through a partnership with NRG to purchasing 100 percent renewable energy." - Mauricio Gutierrez
NRG currently has upwards of 3,000 employees already in Houston. The corporate move will provide additional security and stability for each of these jobs in addition to adding more.
"NRG has committed to being a Texas-based company that will continue to expand. I look forward to strengthening our partnership and continuing to have meaningful discussions about our shared goals and vision for Houston’s future.”
