Spring Forward, Fall Back

Friday, November 02, 2012

At 2:00 a.m. this Sunday, November 4, all of us on Daylight Savings time will turn our clocks back an hour and return to standard time. It always feels good to get an "extra" hour of the weekend!

There is another benefit to returning to standard will once again be getting your customers' meter data an hour earlier than during Daylight Savings time! As you may be aware, California Gas Transmission's system that processes meter data operates on the same time clock throughout the year, not recognizing seasonal time changes. So, when we "fall back", you will begin to see your meter data at 4:00 a.m. Pacific time, rather than at 5:00 a.m., Pacific time.

Enjoy your extra hour this weekend, and one-hour-earlier meter data on Sunday morning!
