The last time change in the country occurred on the night of Saturday April 6. At that time, all Chileans who were in national territory, except those who were in the region of Magellan and Antarctica, they had to set your clocks back one hour to officially adjust to winter time.

The change was made at 11:59 p.m. by moving the clocks back, which gave one more hour to the night. In Easter Island and Salas y Gómez Islandtime change took place earlierat 10 p.m.

Why is the time changed?

In Chile the time change is made since 1968. The idea arose from an engineer from the former electricity distribution company ChilectraEdison Román.

The purpose of having a time change twice a year, depending on the season, whether winter or summer, is to extend the use of natural lightwhich contributes to the reduction of electricity consumption.

Specifically, the next time change must take place in four more months, that is, next September.

It should be remembered that in Magallanes the time change does not take place.
