Solar power panels will be used in MRV Engenharia's project of new buildings. The company, one of the leaders of the federal housing program’s My House, My Life, plans to include the equipment in 30% of its launches this year. In five years, that share will rise to 100%. The planned investment totals nearly R$800 million through 2022. Rubens Menin, founder and chairman of MRV, says this year 17,000 apartments will be part of buildings with photovoltaic panels. The real estate company did not disclose how many launches it will have this year. In 2016, there were 82.
