Time changes in Florida 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 Florida, and falls back one hour in the fall for Florida. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Florida improve its tourism and depend less on Florida's electricity supplies.
