What Is JuiceBox?

JuiceBox provides green, efficient, and sustainable electricity for off-grid shelter pods for houseless individuals.

  • Each shelter "pod" is equipped with a 100W solar panel that delivers power to the JuiceBox, mounted inside. 

  • The power of the sun is harnessed to charge an 18 AH 12V battery. Batteries are recycled from FIRST Robotics teams.

  • This power can then be used to power devices that plug into a wall outlet  (120V AC, 300W max) or 12V DC automotive accessory socket.

  • The battery also powers a bright LED light bar mounted on the front of the JuiceBox, perfect for illuminating rooms at night, and extending the day of the user.

Shelter "Pods"

These shelter "pods" are currently located at Hazelnut Grove, an organized village of houseless Portlanders.

Our Partners

We have partnered with the Pods for Peeps project, which builds small, portable, one-room houses to provide homeless people with a safe shelter, the Rebuilding Center, and the Village Coalition. Through these partnerships, we have installed JuiceBoxes in the Hazelnut Grove community for the previously homeless.
