MTN Lumos Solar now on Jumia @ ₦163,800 No subscriptions

Finally, you can now buy MTN Lumos solar from Jumia Nigeria at the rate of ₦163,800 (ECO–Solar Home System) and ₦220,100 (Lumos Prime–Solar Home System) respectively. This time around we have another stronger solar system that looks similar to the MTN yellow box called Lumos Prime.

I just saw MTN Lumos solar system on Jumia a few hours after publishing the best alternative to MTN Lumos Solar Electricity. I am glad that Lumos made the solar system available to the general public to decide whether to go for pay as you go or acquire it completely.

MTN Lumos price on Jumia

Initially, to get MTN Lumos solar you must visit the nearest MTN office to get one under a prepaid contract that requires you to pay for monthly usage subscription for 5 solid years before it becomes yours. According to my calculation, you will be paying a total of N260,000 – N300,000 plus within 5 years before it becomes yours.

However, that pay as you go option that cost more at the end will not be necessary if you are ready to cough out ₦163,800 or ₦220,000 for a stronger solar system that doesn’t require a monthly subscription or any form of payment.

Who is Lumos

Lumos is not MTN and MTN is not Lumos, they are separate companies that partnered together to bring affordable solar power solutions in Nigeria. Lumos built and provide modern solar energy systems reducing the need for expensive kerosene generators especially in a country with an epileptic power supply like Nigeria.

MTN, on the other hand, is a South African owned mobile telecommunication provider with millions of subscribers in Nigeria alone. MTN integrated prepaid plan to the Lumos box that helps their subscribers to buy the Lumos solar system and pay installmentally. Now you know where the two words “MTN Lumos” originated from.

Price and where to buy MTN Lumos solar

Some of my readers asked me about where they can get MTN solar and the price after reading my first MTN solar review. The answer was always to visit the nearest MTN office but not anymore. You can grab it now from Jumia, the question is can you afford it or better still go for pay as you go MTN plan.

However, the normal MTN Yellow box is called ECO–Solar Home System going for ₦163,800 while the new modern Lumos Prime–Solar Home System with stronger battery and 2 solar panels is going for ₦220,100.
