Clocks go back Sunday

Daylight Saving Time (DST) ends in Mexico on Sunday, October 28 at 2 a.m. Clocks must be turned back one hour.

Most people set their clocks before they head to bed for the night. 

DST in the United States and Canada doesn’t end until Sunday, November 4, so expats should be careful to make the necessary adjustments. 

Baseball fans tuning into the World Series should remember that the Eastern Time Zone will be two hours ahead of Mexico for the next week and the Pacific Time Zone only one hour behind.

Most European countries will set their clocks back this weekend and will be in sync with Mexico.

Two Mexican states do not participate in Daylight Saving Time: Sonora and Quintana Roo.  And 33 municipalities on the northern Mexican border, including Tijuana, Mexicali, Ensenada, Playa Rosarito and Tecate in Baja California, will wait until November 4 to set their clocks back.

According to Mexico’s electricity utility, 899.7544 gigawatt hours of electrical energy are saved by the measure – equivalent to the annual power consumption of 563,000 homes over a one-year period.
