Swiss nationals fined for having single glazing

Could this happen in Australia?

Very unlikely but an interesting thought......

How would you feel if the government announced that you had until January 2016 to install double glazing, or faced a fine for having single glazing?

well that precisely what faces the residence of Geneva.

According to an article all homeowners in Geneva that still have single glazing in their homes at the end of January 2016 will be fined, even aluminium windows that lack a thermal break will be fined. There are some 20,000 properties that are in need of an upgrade.

The report suggests that the upgrade will save the city 15% in lost energy however as many are elderly they will pay the fines rather than comply as they simply cannot afford the upgrades. With such a sudden edict it will be a bonus for local window installation companies.
