Based in Livonia, Michigan, PEP (Plug-in Electric Power) Stations was conceived as a result of one tenant’s request at an office building in the Metro Detroit area. The tenant, a supplier for GM, needed a place to charge a Chevy Volt while at work. James Blain, the architect and award-winning designer of James Blain & Associates, was asked to create a commercial electric vehicle charging station to meet the needs of both the property owner and the tenant. The property owner’s requirements fell into the following four design principles: 1) Identifiable, 2) Indestructible, 3) Inexpensive, and 4) User-friendly. This led to the founding of PEP Stations.
