About

Combining clean tech, fintech, the blockchain and cloud computing, Bitlumens offers a software as a service (SaaS) where women living in rural villages and in need of power can get access to Sun Home Systems (SHS) through crowdfunding. SHS are user-friendly, eco-friendly, and smart internet of things (IoT) devices that bring power to the unbanked in places without power grid. In short, our platform gives kerosene, wood or plastic-dependent households immediate access to cleaner, safer, and affordable energy in Latin America.
