Hour Change in Nicaragua | Jan 30, 2006

Taking advantage of the relationship between the Sun and Earth in this time of the year, when the sun appears earlier, the government from Nicaragua decreed an hour change starting from April 30.

From 2AM on Sunday April 30, the time in Nicaragua is ahead by one hour and such a measure will stay until the month of September of this year (when the sun comes out a little later again)

The decision is because of the necessity of saving in the electric power consumption, before the rise of oil international price.
