SAN FRANCISCO, ( Daylight savings 2010 is on 26 September, Sunday. Daylight savings is seen as a way of saving energy and keeping healthy as with the addition of more daylight to the afternoon, it has been observed in some countries that traffic fatalities are reduced. As the people spend more time enjoying themselves outside it has been suggested that the commercial shops will make more money and this is good for the economy as well. The most interesting debate regarding this practice is its ability to cut down on power consumption in residential areas.

The name itself suggests its function. Daylight savings is seen as a way of conserving energy especially in reference to the residential areas. Countries throughout the world will start observing Daylight savings 2010 from tomorrow in order to cut on the energy consumption in the residential areas. Though the whole concept of daylight savings seems an easy and immensely attractive way of cutting up on power consumption, the idea has most of the time not worked. Studies throughout the years have shown that not much effect has taken place in the countries observing daylight savings time to save energy. In fact a slight increase has been observed in the consumption of electricity after a certain amount of time.

In 2007, a study showed that the procedure had no effect in the state of California while another study in the year 2008 in Indiana showed that the residential consumption of electricity increased by 1% to 4% due to extra cooling in the afternoon cooling and extra morning heating. Daylight savings 2010 does not appear to be an exception to the process. Though the benefit of the Daylight savings lies in the fact that it makes people more aware about the issue and necessity of controlling power consumption.
