October 19, 2011 – Hubbell Wiring Device Kellems (a division of Hubbell Inc.) and PEP Stations LLC, a provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, announced a strategic alliance under which Hubbell will have exclusive representation and marketing rights for PEP Stations products in North America.

Hubbell will offer a line of commercial EV charging solutions that are “architecturally appealing and constructed to withstand the most demanding environments”.

“The PEP Stations EVSE [electric vehicle supply equipment] are an ideal fit for commercial property owners who value a clean attractive appearance in front of their buildings,” said Gary Amato, president Hubbell Electrical Systems.

PEP’s stations provide pay-per-use and access control functionality. PEP’s EV charging and user access are fully automated and self-guided, providing the driver an “electric refuelling experience similar to that of self-serve gas pumps”.

“Hubbell is a world-class provider of high quality electrical and electronic products across a wide spectrum of markets, and we are delighted to underpin this distinction with the addition of PEP charging stations,” said James Blain, president and founder of PEP Stations.
