Turkey will switch to daylight saving time on March 25 at 3 a.m., moving its clocks forward one hour to make better use of daylight.
Daylight saving time will be observed from March 25 to Oct. 28, when the clocks will go back one hour.
One of the most important aims of daylight saving time is to decrease electricity usage in state buildings since almost all public
servants will have finished their workday before the sun sets. According to Turkish Electricity Distribution Company (TEDAŞ) data, Turkey saves an annual average of 600 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity during daylight saving time. Also targeted is a reduction in daily energy demand, which peaks in the evening hours.
