SUBANG (Feb 22): Affordable housing company, Syarikat Perumahan Negara Bhd (SPNB), is currently studying a proposal to install solar panels in its residential units.

SPNB chairman Datuk Husam Musa said that although the proposal is still in its early stages of discussion, it is seen as suitable and aligned with the government's intention to enhance green technology development in the country.

"We are open to collaborating with any solar panel manufacturers to install solar panels in residential homes under the Rumah Mesra Rakyat (RMR) programme," he told reporters after launching the E-RMR system here on Thursday.

Meanwhile, he said that from 2002 to 2017, SPNB successfully took over 56 sick projects involving 24,454 housing units.

"We are open to continuing projects like this in the future, considering our success in resolving many sick projects in the past," he said.

On the E-RMR system, Husam said it was one of the company's efforts to enhance its services in providing RMR houses.

“The company is targeting to build 10,000 RMR units next year. This comprehensive E-RMR system is capable of reducing operational costs, saving employee time, and expediting payments to contractors,” he added.

To date, SPNB has successfully built a total of 65,758 RMR units nationwide.
