One of the great hallmarks of a good business is the ability to evolve and get even better. MTN and Lumos surprised a lot of people when they partnered to introduce the mobile electricity solution which can supply up to 60 watts of energy. Now the Y’ello Box has continued to evolve and is now being used in homes, clinics, schools, and businesses across Nigeria, people are running fans, charging phones, watching TVs and lighting rooms, all using affordable, reliable, clean electricity. with less than 6 months under its belt, the y’ello box is gradually changing the game in the Nigerian energy scene
Yuri Tsitrinbaum, CEO of the Lumos Mobile Electricity Service said: “People don’t have access to the power they need. Fuel is very expensive and other services are unreliable. The Y’ello Box saves customers money all while providing better and more reliable electricity. As Nigeria modernizes, our demand for power increases. It’s time we did more to harness the power of the sun. That is why the Y’ello Box is changing so many lives. It is affordable, it is reliable and paying by mobile phone makes it easy.
“Lumos is growing rapidly across Nigeria, as we invest more money, create business opportunities for Nigerians and employ more and more people. Equally important is the fact that the service is improving the everyday operations of community centers like schools, health clinics and religious institutions,” added Tsitrinbaum.
We cannot argue with this as the y’ello box continues to offer a cheaper and more consumer friendly alternative to power supply. With over 3 years down the line, privatization is still yet to bear any real fruit. Y’ello box might just be the game changer we’ve all been waiting for.
