Daylight Saving Time

Love it or hate it, Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday, which means we move one hour ahead (2 a.m. Sunday changes to 3 a.m.)

Daylight Saving Time has been around for 101 years, introduced to the United States to 1918.  It was first introduced as a way to conserve energy during the summer months.  Changing the clocks one hour ahead meant more daylight in the evening hours, and more time for farmers to spend time out in the fields.

Daylight Saving Time was changed in 2007 after the Energy Policy Act of 2005, when Congress extended DST to help conserve even more energy.  Click here to learn more about Daylight Saving Time.
