OM Solar Buildings and Home Construction

More than 25,000 OM Solar homes have been built in Japan as of mid-2003 — a record achievement in the area of passive solar-based home construction.

And the OM Solar phenomenon is not restricted to home construction. The system has also been adopted in schools, offices, health-care facilities, environmental institutes, and other public buildings. The common consensus among OM Solar system users is that a special kind of comfort is achieved indoors, in terms not only of interior climate but also quality of space.
