Daylight Saving Time

One of the biggest reasons we change our clocks to Daylight Saving Time (DST) is that it reportedly saves electricity.
The demand for electricity for lighting our homes is directly connected to when we go to bed and when we get up. Bedtime for most of us is late evening throughout the year. When we go to bed, we turn off the lights and TV.

Daylight Saving Time “makes” the sun “set” one hour later and therefore reduces the period between sunset and bedtime by one hour. This means that less electricity would be used for lighting and appliances late in the day.

Daylight saving time also means change the battery in your smoke detector. While you’ve got the ladder out to check your smoke detectors, why not change a bulb?Switching to energy efficient bulbs in your ceiling fixtures could save you $30 a year per bulb on your electricity bill!
