Headquarters Netherlands
Lumos offers clean, affordable solar power to 1.3 billion potential customers living off the electricity grid. Hazardous and expensive kerosene generators and lanterns are replaced with modern solar electricity that can power lights, cell phones, computers, and other small electronic devices -- all at once, every day. By providing solar power as a service, Lumos offers a simple and affordable way to pay for electricity in small instalments via mobile phones. Lumos believes everyone has the right to enjoy a better quality of life offered by access to clean, affordable, and reliable electricity. This is enabled by off-grid customers taking control of their energy generation and usage; providing high level customer support and technical service reducing the need for on-site visits and designing durable, energy efficient, worry-free solar power systems.
