Daylight Saving Time will begin on Sunday, March 9, at 2 a.m. Everyone should move his or her clocks forward to 3 a.m.
The annual practice will end on Nov. 2 with moving them back an hour.
The practice of moving the clocks back and forward with the seasons began in the United States during WWI, and was later abandoned and then reinstituted during WWII. It was not until 1966 that the country established a uniform practice of the method, according to the U.S. Naval Observatory.
In the past, changing the clocks came the first Sunday in April and ended on the last Sunday in October. This is the second year using the new schedule. According to Energy.ca.gov, the Daylight Saving Time will cut the countrys electricity usage by about 1 percent every day.
Since there is one hour less each evening before bedtime, less electricity is used late in the day, according to the site.
Fire officials also remind Georgians that when they change their clocks to also change the batteries in their smoke alarms.
