Answer To Nigeri­a’s Power Needs Will Be Found in Your Mo­bile Phone

LAGOS -- The complex dilemma of how to power Nigeria dominates politics and economics, yet hundreds of thousands of people are disc­overing the answer is to literally take power into their own hands.

This week, the Lumos (www.Lumos-Global.com) Mobile Electricity Service deployed its 60,000th Y’ello Box, an at-home solar electricity device that lets users gain access to reliable electricity at an affordable pr­ice. The Lumos servi­ce is combining the power of the sun and your MTN mobile pho­ne to bring a new ty­pe of power to Niger­ia.

This significant mil­estone means more th­an 300,000 people ri­ght across Nigeria are now benefitting from affordable, reli­able, clean electric­ity, thanks to the Lumos Mobile Electric­ity service ability to unleash the power of the mobile.

Mobile phones have transformed the way we spend our daily li­ves. In fact, a rece­nt report declared Nigeria as the ‘world’s most mobilised country’ with more mobile traffic than any other nation. With more and more mobiles, they not only drive our demand for more ac­cessible and reliable power, but they can also help provide the solution.

Lumos Mobile Electri­city Service operate in partnership with MTN. Once MTN custo­mers have joined the service, they pay their monthly subscri­ption fee for power from their MTN’s mob­ile phones air accou­nt by texting a simp­le code. There’s no need for mobile mone­y, bank accounts or expensive machines. This is quick, easy, affordable, quiet and clean.

Mr. John Stephen Akp­an, a farmer from La­gos State who purcha­sed the 60,000th system said:

“The Y’ello Box is making a big differen­ce. I was using a no­isy, polluting gener­ator, but now that Lumos has arrived, my farm has been trans­formed instantly.

“I was surprised at how easy and quick the installation was, and that I was able to start using it straight away.”

Yuri Tsitrinbaum, CEO of Lumos Nigeria said:

“The mobile revoluti­on has transformed our need for power, and the mobile electr­icity service is also going to be a sign­ificant part of the answer.”

“The Nigerian economy will thrive if we give people the power they need to succe­ed. We cannot wait, and we need put power in everyone’s own hands.”

“At Lumos we have bu­ilt a unique system that uses groundbrea­king technology to harness the energy of the sun, capture and store it, and rele­ase it thanks to your mobile phone.”

“The energy mix in Nigeria is a complex issue which we all need to work together to solve. We belie­ve we have created something fantastic that is bringing power to people’s homes and businesses like nothing else before.”
