Cuba ends 2022 daily saving time on Sunday

Cuba ends 2022 daily saving time on Sunday

Havana, Nov 6 (Prensa Latina) Cuba restored its standard time on Sunday when at 1 a.m. clocks were set back one hour nationwide.

This year’s daily saving time in Cuba came into force on March 13, when clocks were set ahead one hour to better take advantage of solar radiation and contribute to saving hydrocarbons and other fuels used in power generation.

The measure, which has been implemented worldwide since 1974, allows for a significant reduction in the maximum energy demand of the so-called rush hour, since cooking food does not largely coincide with lighting.

For this reason, the National Office for the Control of the Rational Use of Energy, attached to the Ministry of Energy and Mines, warned about the need to promote the rational use of this resource as a life practice in homes and workplaces.

In Cuba, daily saving time is usually adopted from early March until late October or early November.
