Authorities in the West African nation took steps ahead of the team's appearance in the 2014 World Cup to make sure the surge in TV viewers doesn't cause a power outage.
Ghana's hydroelectric power supplies have been reduced due to low water levels at energy-producing dams on the Volta River. The country's utilities firm has been rationing electricity with periodic shutdowns, but expects water levels to return, along with full generating capacity, by July.
Ghana also bought 50 megawatts from neighboring Ivory Coast ahead of the June 16 World Cup match, anticipating a surge in electricity usage. Power plants plan to run at maximum capacity and the country's largest smelter, and biggest electricity user, Volta Aluminum will also slow production when Ghana plays.
