History

Electricity

Berwick-upon-Tweed was supplied by 'North Eastern Electricity Board' until privatisation in 1990 for its electricity; however, it then became a plc company, which was acquired by 'CalEnergy' in 1996. This formed a subsiduary called 'CE Electricity' which acted as a managing company for 'Northern Electric'.

Gas

Before it became a region of the British Gas Corporation in 1973, Berwick was supplied by 'Northern Gas Board' for its gas.
