Digital communication service providers, MTN and Lumos Nigeria, are partnering in the launching of high-quality, solar home systems. They are launching two new product offerings – Lumos Prime and Lumos Eco.
Lumos said in a statement yesterday that the new products will enable Lumos’ customers to save up to 70% on their power cost whilst also helping them power a variety of their electrical appliances.
This reiterates Lumos Nigeria’s commitment towards providing reliable and affordable access to power for average households and small businesses across Nigeria.

Some of the features of the new products include that they can better power CCTV, bulbs, fans, laptops, television sets, radios, and mobile devices among others.
Lumos Prime comes with two solar panels, thereby allowing faster charging. It is suitable for customers who are looking to enjoy longer, lasting power using their electronic device.
Other features of Lumos Eco include the presence of one solar panel and being designed for consumers with basic power needs.
“With Lumos, consumers no longer need to worry overpower issues or rely on generators to meet their power needs,” said the CEO of Lumos Nigeria, Mrs. Adepeju Adebajo, adding “Since its launch in Nigeria over five years ago, Lumos has been committed to solving the energy needs of Nigerians”
She assured consumers that Lumos will continue to do so by building revolutionary products that meet the growing needs of the under-served populace.

The MTN SIM-enabled solar-based system, Usoro said, will facilitate affordable access to solar power for Nigerians in urban and rural areas.
