MTN Nigeria in collaboration with Nova-Lumos has introduced mobile electricity, a service where you can have power on-demand and pay as low as N200 from your mobile phone.
Lumos mobile electricity, which was launched in February, provides solar electricity for powering small electronic appliances to customers on a lease to own basis.
“In keeping with its commitment of improving the quality of lives of customers in Nigeria and making it a whole lot brighter, MTN in partnership with Nova-Lumos and the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) have launched MTN mobile electricity to make available modern electricity to millions of homes and businesses in Nigeria through reliable solar systems on a per-use plan,” a statement read.
“Lumos mobile electricity provides households and businesses with modern solar electricity that can power lights, mobile phones, fans, hair clippers, computers, TVs and other small electronic devices (all at once, every day); for as low as N200 per day which you can conveniently pay with your airtime from your MTN line.
“The Lumos mobile electricity solution includes a large solar panel linked to an indoor storage unit that allows customers to access significant amounts of power on-demand, day or night.”
Customers will be able to choose a suitable plan and pay in installments over a period of five years with a full product guarantee during the lease period.
“The service is provided on a lease to own basis, and the cost is spread over a 5-year term, so customers can choose a suitable plan from the plan options and pay for usage in small installments using their MTN line just the same way they purchase data packages,” the statement read.
“Customers also receive a full product guarantee during the lease period, providing peace of mind and quality assurance. Visit any MTN walk-in-centres nationwide and plug into Lumos mobile electricity.”
