Why Lumos?

Lumos Solar is the clear choice

WHO WE ARE

Lumos Solar was founded in 2006 with the mission of helping solar become a mainstream energy source. We saw a need in the market for solar products that are highly functional, efficient, and also beautiful.

We take a systems approach to design, thinking about how our products will be installed and used. Our systems approach to product design ensures that all products work together seamlessly to achieve the best aesthetics and functionality.

Our proprietary architectural solar products are designed and manufactured to our specifications. We use the highest quality components and state-of-the-art U.S. manufacturing to create the most beautiful, durable and functional solar products available.
