Swiss Face Up to 3 Years in Prison For Violating Heating Rules

September 7th, 2022

Via: Summit News:

People in Switzerland who violate the country’s new heating rules which forbid setting the temperature above 19°C (66.2F) in the colder months will face up to three years in prison.

Yes, really.

Under the new rules, buildings that use gas heating systems are restricted to 19°C, while hot water can only be heated up to 60°C and radiant heaters are banned entirely.

It will also be forbidden to heat swimming polls and saunas.

Depending on the severity of the violation and the individual’s economic situation, fines will range from 30 to 3,000 Swiss francs ($30 to $3,050), while people could also be imprisoned for up to three years.

Utility companies and larger businesses would face even more severe penalties for breaking the energy rationing rules.

Despite the brazenly authoritarian restrictions, Economy Minister Guy Parmelin asserted, “We are not a police state,” although he acknowledged police would perform “spot checks” to try to catch violators.

I can't help having visions of the Haughty Swiss shivering in their beds while wearing a $25K watch and a wool night cap like Ebenezer Scrooge.

Our 100+ year old house hardly ever gets up to more than 67 degrees F. in very cold weather (20 degrees F. and lower), especially if the wind is blowing.
