Set Your Clock Ahead…Does Daylight Savings Time Really Save Energy?

By the time you’re reading this…you have either forgotten to set your clock ahead one hour or you set your clock ahead and now what?  As my friend in Arizona would say, “that’s a bunch of BS…why set your clocks ahead and then set them back?”  Is it all about energy savings, more daylight hours or what?

Alexis Petru with Earth911.com has provided a great take on the concept including a “try it yourself” item so you can better understand the value of Daylight Savings Time.  Personally, I like the way Arizona handles energy consumption, you pay lower electric rates by doing laundry, etc on weekends or after 7 PM or before 7 AM…lower rates, what a motivation!  Click here to read the article and try some energy savings ideas yourself!
