Maybe 3 years in the slammer.

The country could also give fines of up to 3,000 Swiss Francs (£2,667)
In gas-heated buildings, water could not be heated to more than 60C (140F)
Radiant heaters would be banned and saunas and swimming pools would have to be cold

Likely that the proposed measures will be subject to challenges and disputes
