Power Consumption Massively Reduced During Croatia v Serbia Match


Croatia’s national power company Hrvatska elektoprivreda (HEP) have reported that when Croatia played Serbia in their much-anticipated World Cup qualifier in Zagreb on 22 March households massively reduced their power consumption.

Power consumption during the week leading up to the match were on a par with the rest of March, as to consumption on the day of the game, but in the evening hours, when consumption is at its peak for the day, Croatian households reduced their consumption by hundreds of mega watts, says HEP.


The main reason being that many left home and packed out local pubs and cafes to watch the game in the company of friends. Also HEP says that those who did decide to stay in and watch the match at home put aside everything else and just sat in front of their television sets.
