The Ministry of Energy (Sener) reported that on April 5 there will be daylight saving time in Mexico, which consists of moving the clocks forward one hour.
“This Saturday, April 4, stay at home and before going to sleep, put your watch forward one hour, so that on Sunday you start your day with the new schedule,” Sener said in a statement.
According to the agency, this schedule will come into force in the Mexican Republic with the exception of the states of Sonora and Quintana Roo, as well as in 33 municipalities on the border strip: Tijuana, Mexicali, Ensenada, Playa Rosarito and Tecate in Baja California; Juárez, Ojinaga, Ascensión, Coyame del Sotol, Guadalupe, Janos, Manuel Benavides and Praxedis G. Guerrero in Chihuahua; Acuña, Piedras Negras, Guerrero, Hidalgo, Jiménez, Zaragoza, Nava and Ocampo in Coahuila; Anáhuac and Los Aldama in Nuevo León; Nuevo Laredo, Reynosa, Matamoros, Camargo, Guerrero, Gustavo Díaz Ordaz, Mier, Miguel Alemán, Río Bravo and Valle Hermoso in Tamaulipas.
The implementation of daylight saving time in 2020 had been in doubt because on March 27, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said that he would wait to see if there really is an energy saving with the time change.
Daylight saving time began in Mexico in 1996 and starts on the first Sunday in April and ends on the last Sunday in October since 2017.
