Venezuela to shift time zones again

Venezuela to shift time zones again

As a prolonged drought affects reservoirs that feed Venezuela's hydroelectric plants, the country is considering reducing electrity usage by switching time zones, authorities said Monday.
"If the drought problem gets worse, we will be forced to resort to anything that allows us to save water to generate electricity" said Angel Rodriguez, Venezuela's electricity minister. Rodriguez also called on the private sector to save electricity in an effort to keep reservoirs at a "comfortable" level until May, when the next major rains are expected.
