The New Daylight Saving Time
The new Daylight Saving Time starts on Sunday April 6th
From the first Sunday of April until the last Sunday on October, the daylight saving time is up and running, an initiative introduced by the government to save a considerable amount of electric energy in the country. This means Mexicans will have more hours of daylight by setting their clocks forward one hour.
The daylight saving time will be introduced in all of Mexico except for 33 counties in the northern border; these change their time on the second Sunday of March and until the first Sunday of November. This is a way of keeping a simpler time for those citizens who constantly cross the border to the US.
Some of these cities include: Tijuana, Mexicali and Ensenada in Baja California; Ciudad Juárez and Ojinaga in Chihuahua; Acuña and Piedras Negras in Coahuila; Anáhuac in Nuevo Leon and Nuevo Laredo, Reynosa and Matamoros in Tamaulipas.
The only state not affected by this change is Sonora, given the commercial interaction they maintain with Arizona, which is the only state in the US that doesn’t change their time.
According to the Electric Energy Savings Trust Fund this initiative has had a positive effect in regard to the consumption of energy, during those months of higher energy demand.
For the year 2013, there was a considerable amount of electric energy saving, as much as 224 gigawatts per hour, amount consumed in the state of Nayarit, translated into a total of 635 million pesos saved. All this thanks to the daytime saving time.
So remember that next Saturday April 6th, before going to sleep, set forward your clock one hour. At morning you’ll wake up to the new time and that way you won’t miss your daily activities.
