Turkish people will no longer 'fall back' after a cabinet decision regarding daylight saving time (DST) throughout the year in Turkey was published on the Official Gazette on Thursday, putting an end to adjusting the clocks every spring and fall seasons to utilize daylight.
Decision no. 24005 dated September 6, 2016, issued by the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources amended the second article of the Law Regarding the 24-Hour Day.
The clause specifying the end of daylight savings time on October 30, 2016 as of 4 a.m. local time has been repealed accordingly.
Turkey saves about 800 million to 1 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity throughout daylight saving time, equivalent to the annual power production of a mid-level hydroelectric power plant.
