Daylight Savings Time Saved Economy NIS 80m

Daylight Savings Time saved households NIS 14 million, according to figures from the Manufacturers Association.

The Israeli economy saved NIS 80 million over the 170-day period, which ended early this morning. NIS 40 million of the savings came from reduced electricity usage for lighting and air-conditioning.

In addition, the increased sunshine in the evening hours improved worker productivity and quality of life, and resulted in fewer traffic accidents.
