OES - Public viewings in off-grid areas

Preparatory Research into Off-Grid Electrification of Non-Electrified Areas in Ghana (2010)


One such demonstration was held between May 14-18, 2010. Recorded FIFA World Cup matches were shown in villages in northern Ghana. This was done in a total of five locations, mainly villages without electricity, and one viewing attracted more than 2,500 people. Over two hours of World Cup footage could be displayed after just four hours of charging solar panels. Then in June and July of 2010, matches from the 2010 FIFA World Cup were broadcast live.
