Until 1990, the electricity supply in Bangor came from 'Merseyside and North Wales Electricity Board' (MANWEB). After privatisation it became 'MANWEB plc' and was acquired by Scottish Power. Scottish Power were then acquired by Spanish company 'Iberdrola' in 2007.


Up until 1973, Bangor's gas was provided by 'Wales Gas Board', just like the rest of Wales. It then became an area of the British Gas Corporation.
