RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – Clocks will be set one hour forward at midnight on Sunday, October 20th, as summer season begins in most Brazilian states. The additional hour of daylight gained by the small change will reportedly save about R$400 million in energy during the four months for which the new schedule will remain in place. This represents four times the amount Brazil's daylight saving time saved last year.
The daylight saving time will be introduced in the south, southeast and center of Brazil, including Brasília, and will last for 119 days . . .
