Time in Brazil
The exact time in Brazil is based on the time zones for Brazil. We will always try to give you the exact time for Brazil. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Brazil might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Brazil are usually done to adapt citizen and tourist activity to the solar cycle. This allows for greater usage of daylight, reducing dependency on electricity. That is why the time is sent ahead one hour in the spring for Brazil, and falls back one hour in the fall for Brazil. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Brazil to improve its tourism and depend less on Brazil's electricity supplies.
