Summertime is extended to April
Chile will delay the end of its summertime as the country faces an energy squeeze because of drought and high demand. The country will now end its daylight savings and push the clocks back by an hour on 2 April, three weeks later than usual.
Chile relies heavily on hydroelectric power, and lack of rain has forced generators to rely on costly fuel-driven plants. The country was hit by several blackouts last year after a massive earthquake damaged transmission lines and stations in its south-central section.
