summer time 2020 ends

This Sunday, October 25, summer time ends and, therefore, today before going to sleep it is advisable to set the clocks back one hour.

This measure applies to the entire country, with the exception of Sonora, Quintana Roo and the 33 municipalities of the northern border strip. The time change was implemented in Mexico since 1996, with the purpose of reducing electricity consumption by taking advantage of natural light for as long as possible.

Daylight saving time began on Sunday, April 5 and runs until October 25, in accordance with the Legislative Decree in force since 2002.

As every year, this schedule comes to an end to give way to winter, a routine that has become customary, but which in many cases means forgetting whether to set the clock forward or backward.

Officially, the time change is from 2:00 am on Sunday, October 25, but the clocks can be set back the night before to avoid any setback the next day.

The winter schedule will be characterized by having days with fewer hours of natural light and will be in effect until Sunday, April 4, 2021.

In the border strip with the United States, the time change begins until November 1 at 02:00 in the morning. In that area, clocks must also be delayed one hour, a measure that applies on that date for the municipalities of Ensenada, Tijuana and Mexicali, in Baja California; Ciudad Juárez and Ojinaga, in Chihuahua; Acuña and Piedras Negras, in Coahuila.

It also involves the municipalities of Anáhuac, in Nuevo León, and the cities of Nuevo Laredo, Reynosa and Matamoros, in Tamaulipas.

This year, the start of summer time coincided with the social confinement decreed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to the Sener, the objective is to “make better use of sunlight” to obtain a reduction in the consumption of electricity during peak hours.
