Is Daylight Savings Energy Efficient? No, Says Expert
It is quite possible that daylight saving time is one of the most unambiguously contentious issues of our time. I’m not saying it’s the only one, but given the sheer weight of legislation, vials of ink, hours of discussion dedicated to the issue of daylight savings, whether we should continue it, or whether it should be scrapped, I would suggest that it is one of the most hotly contested issues in many nations.
For those in my locale - Southeastern Australia - we are set to move our clocks backward on the 6th of April. For those in the United States your set to put your clock forward on March 9, while Londoners are looking to March 30.
But why all this fuss about what time it should be? And specifically to readers here at CleanTechnica, is it at all energy efficient?
