Venezuela moves clocks forward 30 min to save power

The president of the Venezuelan National Assembly, Henry Ramos Allup, stands during a press conference to evaluate the first 100 days of parliamentary work, in Caracas on April 14, 2016Venezuela announced Friday it is shifting its time zone forward 30 minutes to save power and alleviate a severe electricity crisis the government blames on the El Nino weather phenomenon. The move, effective May 1, will scrap a half-hour subtraction to the clocks Venezuela’s late former president Hugo Chavez introduced in 2007 that gave his country a slight offset to its neighbors. The modified time will see Caracas go back to four hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) — sharing the same hour as Havana and Washington (on Eastern Daylight Time) — according to Science and Technology Minister Jorge Arreaza.
