Regarding power crisis

Power shortage has become acute in recent time and we have seen two unfortunate incidents at Kansat and Sonir Akhra. But it seems that nobody has any solution to this power problem. I have a humble suggestion regarding this. I have heard that many countries like Singapore, UAE, and Pakistan are applying daylight saving method; in the system people advance their clocks by one hour so that they can use that extra daylight hour to their advantage and save valuable electricity. If we can implement this system in Bangladesh I am sure we can save a good amount of electricity because then people will start their day an hour earlier and finish their work one hour earlier. I think we should seriously ponder on this suggestion.
