Is there a way to get UTC time results in a runtimeReport?

For a runtimeReport covering the DST time change it seems that the DST adjustment is made at 2am UTC time rather than 2am thermostat time.

Here is a sample of some data (US Eastern):
"2016-03-12,20:55:00,0,,,,66.3,42,66,",
"2016-03-12,21:00:00,0,,,,66.2,42,66,",
"2016-03-12,21:05:00,0,,,,66,42,66,",
"2016-03-12,21:10:00,,,,,,,,",
"2016-03-12,21:15:00,,,,,,,,",
"2016-03-12,21:20:00,,,,,,,,",
"2016-03-12,21:25:00,,,,,,,,",
"2016-03-12,21:30:00,,,,,,,,",
"2016-03-12,21:35:00,,,,,,,,",
"2016-03-12,21:40:00,,,,,,,,",
"2016-03-12,21:45:00,,,,,,,,",
"2016-03-12,21:50:00,,,,,,,,",
"2016-03-12,21:55:00,,,,,,,,",
"2016-03-12,22:00:00,,49.1,76,4,,,,",
"2016-03-12,22:05:00,,49.1,76,4,,,,",
"2016-03-12,22:10:00,0,49.1,76,4,66.5,42,66,",

When trying to convert to UTC in my application, I can handle everything before 9pm without issue, and everything after 2am the next day, but there will be data loss for at least 1 hour on each DST conversion, and incorrect time conversion for the period between 9pm and 2am (without special handling for that time range).

On the above linked page it states "The dates and times sent by the thermostat are converted to UTC for storage."

Is there some way to get UTC time returned that is not documented on the following page? https://www.ecobee.com/home/developer...
