Aberystwyth used to be supplied by 'Merseyside and North Wales Electricity Board' (MANWEB). Thereafter it became 'MANWEB plc' and was acquired by Scottish Power. Scottish Power was then also acquired by Spanish energy giants 'Iberdrola'.


From 1948 until 1973, Aber's gas, like the rest of Wales, was supplied by 'Wales Gas Board'. However, after this point it became a region of the British Gas Corporation.
