Time change in Nicaragua | May 1, 2006

Taking advantage of the relationship between the Sun and Earth in this time of the year, the government from Nicaragua decided to apply a time change of one hour change starting April 30, 2006.

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

This decision was made in an attempt to save electricity consumption, which is seen as even more important now that the oil prise is on a rise.
