Ghana are rationing electricity so people can watch the World Cup match v America

Ghana are taking extreme measures to make sure their countrymen can can watch the World Cup match v America on Monday night.

According to Quartz:

To ensure that World Cup viewing won’t be interrupted, Ghana is purchasing 50 megawatts of electricity from its neighbor, Ivory Coast.

Power plants will also be running at maximum capacity, and Volta Aluminum, the nation’s largest smelter and a large drain on electricity, will slow production during the match.

Power shortages have been prevalent in Ghana in recent months due to a lack of water needed to power hydroelectric dams on the Volta River.
