Electricity service providers have rolled out contingency measures to ensure reliable power supply during the World Cup tournament.

As part of the measures, 50 megawatts of power will be taken from Cote d?Ivoire at the times Ghana will play, since the matches would not run concurrently.

A statement issued by the Director of Public Relations and External Affairs of the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC), Nana Yaa Jantuah, said arrangements were also being made with the Volta Aluminum Company (VALCO) Limited to reduce its energy consumption at the times Ghana would be playing.

The decision to roll out the contingency measures came after the PURC had met officials of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), the Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) and the Volta River Authority (VRA) to ensure reliable power supply during the World Cup.
