Heat Monitoring All of our buildings are manitored, therefore allowing the heat to be changed from a distance. The buildings are all heated according to a schedule defined by their usage. Triple-gaze windows Most buildings have good insulation with triple-gazed windows. Thermal Solar Panels The building in Savoleyres has thermal solar panels that allow water to be heated for the restaurants on the slopes. Photovoltaic Solar Panels Some of the large surfaces of some of the buildings are equipped with photovoltaic solar pannels. For instance, this is the case of the building at the bottom of the Jumbo and Le Châble. The energy they produce is directly sent for the resort.
