Bloomberg reports that Ghana plans to increase power production during its world cup matches and has asked its largest aluminium smelter, Volta Aluminium Co, to reduce consumption to ensure that scheduled blackouts don’t interfere with the home county’s football games.

Neighbouring Ivory Coast has agreed to supply 50 MW to Ghana during its games. Ghana has been rationing power because of a shortage of natural gas and below average levels of water at hydroelectric plants.
