New Sun Road provides the brains for microgrids powering shelters in San Jose

When Santa Clara County commissioned Pallet Shelter to build Casitas de Esperanza, a 100-bed community to shelter the unhoused, they needed to figure out how to power the site. The location was outside the old San Jose City Hall, which lacked reliable utility power. Rather than paying the utility company’s $600,000 quote or power the site completely with generators, the county contracted BoxPower to energize the shelter with two microgrids: containerized solar + battery + backup generator.
