Before the Scottish electricity boards were privatised in 1991, the 'South of Scotland Electricity Board' were the electricity supplier for Glasgow. In 2007, the privatised descendent 'Scottish Power' was taken over by the Spanish 'Iberdrola'. They have, however, decided to continue using the same branding for the company.
Glasgow's gas used to be supplied by 'Scottish Gas Board' from 1949 until it became a region of the British Gas Corporation in 1973.
