Mexico uses time change to save energy

Mexico has temporarily advanced its time by one hour for the fifth consecutive year in an effort to reduce energy demand and cut carbon emissions.
 
On 2 April, all Mexicans moved their clocks forward by an hour.

"In this way the use of fossil fuels to generate electricity also falls, which is good for the environment." The report concluded.
