What time zone is Maine?

Maine is primarily in the Eastern Time Zone (ET) in the United States. Eastern Time is UTC-5 during Standard Time (EST) and UTC-4 during Daylight Saving Time (EDT), which is observed from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November. Maine, along with most of the eastern United States, follows these time zone offsets.

Note that the start and end dates of daylight saving time can change


Maine's area code history has been relatively simple and consistent. Since the establishment of the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) in 1947, the state has been served by a single area code, **Area Code 207**, which has covered the entirety of Maine. Unlike other regions that underwent area code splits or overlays due to population growth and increased telecommunications demand, Maine has maintained its original area code, making it a unique case of long-standing continuity in the world of telecommunications within the state.
