NC Company Overview

Nova Lumos, often also branded as Lumos, is an alternative energy company that focuses on providing solar power systems to people who live in regions that are not served by electrical grids. It is a much safer alternative to kerosene generators and can be used even by people who live in rainy conditions, as the batteries used by the system only require six hours of sunlight to charge and are designed to work even when it is cloudy. Using the system, people can power their homes’ lights and fans, charge their phones and laptops, and use devices like TVs, and it can also support small businesses. Lumos is also a completely green and sustainable way of getting electricity, while also generally being cheaper than using batteries, oil lamps, and even candles in a home. Nova Lumos, based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, serves people all over the world who do not have access to grid electricity, or who cannot afford the high costs that can be associated with it in some areas. It aims to make safe power for small devices like lights, fans, TVs, and phone chargers affordable for everyone and operates on a lease-to-buy model. Lumos is associated with Power Africa, OPIC, Lighting Global, and other international renewable energy and lighting initiatives.
