Turkey to enter daylight savings time March 25
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily NewsPeople in Turkey will set their clocks and watches forward one hour to start daylight savings time in the early hours of Sunday, March 25.
Turkey adopted daylight savings time to keep its clocks in line with those of European countries and to decrease the demand for electricity in the early evening hours.
According to the Energy and Natural Resources Ministry, implementing daylight savings time saves the country each year the same amount of energy – in terms of lighting, heating and cooling – as the output of a medium-sized power plant.
Daylight savings will conclude this year on Sunday, Oct. 28, when clocks will once again be set back one hour.
