HAVANA, Nov 5 Normal time applies as of today in Cuba, with the clocks set back one hour, coinciding with the countries of the northern hemisphere.At 1:00 (local time), Cubans will have to go back one hour to restore normal time in the country.
This time change implies an increase in the demand for electricity during peak hours, due to the coincidence of greater use of artificial light and cooking of food between 05:00 in the afternoon and 09:00 at night. , specified in Granma newspaper.
For this reason, the National Office for the Control of the Rational Use of Energy calls to promote savings as a practice of life at home and in the workplace, as well as to move home activities outside of peak consumption hours.
In Cuba, this temporary adjustment of the clocks usually lasts from the beginning of March until the end of October or the beginning of November.
