    My TOU ("Time Of Use") power meter was installed before they revised the daylight savings time calendar. I end up losing out because our energy usage schedule (time we cook, clean, etc.) is on the new schedule, but the tiered rate schedule still changes on the old schedule. The power company worked out that this ends up in their favor, so they sent out a note that they plan to leave the old firmware (using the old calendar) in their meter, and not reprogram it.
