Information about the project
Lumos Mobile Electricity Powered by MTN Nigeria
Lumos Mobile Electricity Powered by MTN Nigeria tackles one of humanity's biggest challenges: providing affordable carbon free energy to the more than 1 billion people who live in the dark. Since January 2016 we have provided electricity to more than 150,000 Nigerians, in 30,000 homes, small business, and schools. With Lumos home solar systems, customers living off-grid can power their homes for less than 50 cents a day. And with MTN's partnership, customers can pay easily with their mobile phones using existing airtime accounts.
National implementation: Nigeria
Ongoing from 01/10/2015 to 28/02/2017
