MTN Nigeria customers to pay for new solar electricity service using Y’ello Box, a solar electricity system that officially launched earlier this year and allows families and business owners to harness the power of the sun.
Designed and operated by Lumos Mobile Electricity Service, the Y’ello Box provides electricity to customers 24 hours a day, which people pay for using their MTN mobile phone.
“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,” said Yuri Tsitrinbaum, CEO of the Lumos Mobile Electricity Service.
