Daylight Saving Time - Start from Today!

Just as sunflowers turn their heads to catch every sunbeam, so too have we discovered a simple way to get more from our sun. Daylight Saving Time (DST) gives us the opportunity to enjoy sunny summer evenings by moving our clocks an hour forward in the spring.

Previously, from 1987 through 2006, the start and end dates were the first Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October. Starting in 2007, most of the United States and Canada observe DST from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November, shifting clocks typically at 02:00 local time. The 2007 U.S. change was part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and Congress retains the right to go back to the previous dates once an energy consumption study is done.
