Swiss ‘Green home’ owners consume just 2000 Watts

 Surprise - Switzerland 16 January 2019

With energy production rising and consumption at a global high, Swiss ‘2000 Watt houses’ are a brave attempt to show what can be done to limit our domestic demands for endless energy. They are not only equipped with energy saving technology - their owners also ensure that tenants are contractually obliged to be environmental friendly. Whilst some regard this as self-evident, others see it as environmental despotism. (1700 Words) - By Stefan Michel
