Time in Chile
The exact time in Chile is based on the time zones for Chile. We will always try to give you the exact time for Chile. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Chile might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Chile 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 Chile, and falls back one hour in the fall for Chile. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Chile to improve its tourism and depend less on Chile's electricity supplies.
