Ghana to boost match-time electricity

Ghana plans to boost power production during its World Cup matches and asked the nation's largest aluminium smelter to reduce consumption to make sure that scheduled blackouts don't interfere with the Black Stars' games, according to a Bloomberg report.

"Football is the passion of the nation," Kudjoe Fianoo, executive committee member of the Ghana Football Association, said in an interview in Sao Paulo. "It is no wonder the government is spending extra money to get us reliable power at this very important time in our nation."

Neighbour Ivory Coast has agreed to supply 50 megawatts to Ghana during the matches, the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission said, according to the report.

The agency said that the Volta Aluminum Co. has been asked to reduce power use during Ghana matches.

"These plans are put in place for consumers to watch uninterruptible football matches during the World Cup," the agency said in the statement. "Within these arrangements the load-shedding schedule, though varied, still exists."
