Recycling and waste sorting are important! Make a difference and dispose of your rubbish in the designated waste bins. And why not reduce your footprint? You can compensate for transport by paying a little extra when buying tickets or through organisations such as Myclimate, which invest this money in projects related to environmental protection.
The inhabitants of the Bavona Valley have chosen to have no electricity supply. Energy needs are met through the use of solar panels.
The recently finalized Gotthard wind farm consists of 5 wind turbines (each with a power of 2.35 MW) which together will produce between 16 and 20 GWh of electricity each year. Enough to meet the needs of all households in Upper Ticino.
