On Sunday we will be in Daylight Savings Time

Gloria Machado León 7 marzo, 2014

On Sunday March 9th will come into force Daylight Savings Time , so at 12:00 pm on Saturday, March 8th , the hands of a clock should be put one hour  forward , what will be ending the current Schedule and Normal, effective from November 3rd, 2013 .

In the summer months , days are longer , so you switch to Daylight Saving Time to make better use of sunlight in daily activities .

The implementation of Daylight Saving Time is a measure of high impact on energy savings. This decision reduced consumption of electricity for lighting is obtained and will be mismatched greatly the demand for electricity for cooking food with the lighting , so that the maximum demand will significantly reduce the peak hour .

It reiterates that everything we do to achieve a more rational use of energy , will benefit to all our people and the national economy.
