Lumos: The Mobile Utility
Around the world, a staggering 1.5 billion people aren’t connected to the electrical grid. Working hand in hand with mobile network operators, Lumos is building the world’s first distributed utility.
Our goal is to provide off-grid households and small businesses with affordable solar power. Our secure systems only produce electricity upon payment through cellular pre-paid accounts.
Introducing the ‘PowerSystem’ – Mobile Electricity in a Box
With this innovative solution, cellular and solar technologies unite to bring a reliable, clean, and sustainable energy source to developing markets.
The Lumos PowerSystem contains a solar panel (ten times more capacity than comparable units), and an indoor unit (includes power storing battery, output sockets, lights, and connecting cables).
The Lumos system provides households with 24/7 real, modern electricity for cell phone charging, lighting, small televisions, radios, fans, and more. Small businesses can power computers, tools, sewing machines, and more.
The Lumos system is remotely managed and monitored around the clock to ensure quality and continuity of service.
The system is designed as a self-installing kit, which can be distributed through existing networks.
To accommodate even the tightest budgets, Lumos’ energy bill is lower than current spending on kerosene, and is much safer.
Users can take full control of their energy systems—and make secure mobile payments on a pre-paid basis—directly from their cell phones, using their mobile operator’s billing infrastructure.
Integrated security mechanisms ensure that electricity is generated only if payment was made. If stolen, the panels cannot be used, separated, or tampered with.
Our goal is to ‘democratize’ electricity by making solar energy affordable and accessible to all. Over the years, mobile operators have expanded from voice to data, to mobile banking and mobile commerce. Mobile utility could be the next natural step.
