Here’s my rant for the week, “Daylight Savings Time”
The idea behind daylight savings time is to cut back on residential electricity use, which is according to researchers, heaviest at night. By moving the clocks forward in the spring, human activity would start and end earlier, and when people return to their still-sunny houses after work, they wouldn’t need to turn on the lights until an hour later than normal. The result? Energy savings.
However, research has found DST did reduce energy use in the evenings. But it boosted energy usage in the mornings, essentially cancelling all the savings.
Best of Light,
