History

Electricity

Bath's electricity connection used to come from 'South Western Electricity Board'; however, after privatisation and various takeovers thereafter, EDF acquired the company in 2003, who discontinued the name. EDF sold the company on to 'PPL' who rebranded the company to become the company we know today as 'Western Power Distribution', Bath's current DNO.

Gas

Between 1948-1973, all gas in Bath came from 'South Western Gas Board'. After 1973, it became a region of the British Gas Corporation.
