Without Lumin, you pay for your entire month of energy use all at once. With Lumin, you have the flexibility to pay in smaller amounts when it's convenient for your budget. Your Lumin notification will help you understand what part of your bill is energy, taxes, and fixed charges. Use your digital wallet to pay your bills and manage your money, whether it comes from a bank account, pre-paid debit card, or cash. Payments post the same day.
Lumin was created in 2014 through a partnership of the Delta Institute, IDEO, ISEIF, Faith in Place, and Atomic Object as a project, DeltaLumin, to educate low and moderate income consumers about the Illinois smart grid. The project quickly grew into the product we call Lumin. We are looking forward to a launch in 2019 in Illinois and beyond.
