Next Sunday, March 10 will start the summer time in Baja California, so the population must advance its clock one hour, reported the Municipal Government.

Ensenada is part of the 33 municipalities of the northern border strip (except those of the State of Sonora), in which the clock must advance one hour on the second Sunday of March.

Information from the Fideicomiso para el Ahorro de Energía Eléctrica (FIDE) indicate that the main objective of the implementation of the Summer Time is to save electricity by making better use of natural light.

FIDE data indicate that in 2017 there was an economic saving of one thousand 311 million pesos and avoided emissions were 402 thousand tons of CO2 equivalent.
