Assessment of Mtn Lumos Box Solar Energy as an Alternative Source of Electricity Power Supply in Nigeria: Case Study of Mubi, Adamawa State North Eastern Nigeria (Published)
This research was carried out in Mubi, Adamawa State North Eastern Nigeria. Mubi lie within latitude 10 0015ꞌN and 100 025ꞌN and longitude 130 015 ꞌE and 130 025 ꞌE. The research was aimed at accessing the MTN Lumos box solar energy as an alternative source of electricity power supply with the purpose of having another source of electric power supply in Nigeria, off the National grid and discourages the uses of electric power generator due to high cost of fueling and maintenance. The equipment’s were connected properly according to the manual specifications; the equipment’s includes the following: the solar panel, cable, MTN Lumos box, inverter 60W, LED bulbs and a Television LG 32 inch. The research was carried out in six days: 24th August, 2021, 26th August, 2021, 30th August, 2021, 23rd December,2021, 24th December, 2021 and 28th December, 2021. These six days the MTN Lumos box battery was allowed to charge to 100% and 74% minimum. From the experiment and the result obtained, it was observed that the solar energy conversion system supply electricity power for three hours twenty minutes to the low power consumption house hold electric appliances uninterrupted, double panel MTN Lumos box electricity power supply should be used for further research.
