MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This paper evaluates the impact of daylight saving time (DST) on households’ consumption of electricity in Mexico. Differences-in-differences estimates suggest that current savings in households’ electricity consumption due to DST account for almost 0.6% of total electricity consumption in the country. Nevertheless, the effect of DST is not homogeneous along the whole period in which it is in effect (from April to October). Savings are larger toward the end of the period.
