United Rentals, Inc. has introduced JuiceBox mobile power generators to its equipment rental fleet. The generators can be powered by safe and clean propane or natural gas, providing a low-emissions alternative to diesel machines to charge electric vehicles, tools, and other equipment.

United Rentals acquired the generators from Evergreen Mobile Power. They feature a much lower operating cost than diesel generators, up to 40 percent. The generators use propane, which produces 17 percent lower greenhouse gas emissions than diesel machines. The generators have a 50-inch long, 50-inch wide, and 54-inch high footprint and deliver instant power up to 20 kilowatts (kW). They can be linked together to address higher power demands.

The generators are equipped with dual interchangeable and removable electrical panels, making it fast and easy to customize the generators. In addition to the environmental benefits, the generators run much quieter than traditional generators.

Among the applications for JuiceBox generators are construction worksites; emergency response; entertainment venues including concerts, festivals, and sports events; telecommunications; and other markets looking to explore cleaner fuel power.

The generators join low- and zero-emissions rental equipment options including aerial lifts, trucks, vans, compact excavators, e-dumpsters, battery systems, and more.

"Diesel engine emission regulations are driving companies to look for new options they can deploy," says Dan Gribbell, PHVAC region sales and marketing director at United Rentals. "Adding JuiceBox generators to our fleet provides another way we are helping our customers create lower-emission worksites without compromising safety or productivity. With low operations costs and greenhouse gas emissions, the JuiceBox provides a smarter choice for the environment and a customer's wallet."
