Spring Solar Outage Times are Expressed in Eastern Standard Time

Back to top

Any stations looking to PRSS.org for guidance on spring solar outages should be aware that the times posted on PRSS.org reflect Eastern Standard Time. As of Sunday, March 9, we have transitioned to Eastern Daylight Time, which is one hour ahead of Eastern Standard Time. Therefore, all solar outage times listed on the website are one hour behind the Eastern Daylight Time.

For example, if the schedule on PRSS.org states that you may experience a solar outage at 14:15 EST, you should assume that this translates to 15:15 EDT. This guidance will apply throughout the duration of this spring solar outage season, which is set to end this Thursday, March 13, 2014.

To view the PRSS.org information on solar outages, please visit http://prss.org/tools-and-resources and use the left-hand pull-down menu to find information for your state. The original system message on spring solar outages is included below for your reference.

We regret any confusion this may have caused to you or your operations. If you have any questions or comments, the PRSS Help Desk is available by telephone at 800.971.7677, or via email: prsshelp@npr.org
