Noodoe EV, which installs electric vehicle charging stations in apartments, hotels, gas stations and retail parking lots, is moving its headquarters to Houston from the Los Angeles area.
Noodoe’s new headquarters will be at 9896 Bissonnet in southwest Houston. How many jobs will be created or how much space they will take weren’t immediately available, according to the Houston Business Journal.
The company follows EV giant Tesla in its relocation from California to the lone star state. Both companies cited growth capacity as one of the major factors behind the decision. However, Texas’ pro-business policies likely will provide the companies with massive tax breaks as well.
“Houston has the port and airport capacity we need to efficiently meet the unprecedented demand for EV charging stations,” said Noodoe CEO Jennifer Chang. “Houston has long been the Energy Capital of the World, mostly because of oil and gas extraction. Noodoe will help the city continue its energy legacy, only this time without fossil fuels.”
In addition to providing residential and commercial properties with EV charging stations, Noodoe boasts a highly innovative operating system, which includes automated functions for peak-hour price adjustments, payment processing and billing, infrastructure diagnostics and more.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott made an official announcement welcoming Tesla to the state, however the governor has yet to publicly comment on Noodoe’s relocation.
