I still hate DST.
In a desperate search for a fix to the state's electricity crisis in 2001, the California Energy Commission examined a variety of time-warping scenarios, like creating double daylight savings time. But instead of implementing this super-duper saving time, the commission actually found "total electricity use would be virtually unchanged" if the state didn't use DST at all. The report suggested "the lower electric use typically observed after the spring onset of DST (Daylight Saving Time) may be purely the result of the warmer, longer days and not because of the time change."
