Before privatisation kicked in, between the years of 1948-1990, Preston was supplied by 'North West Electricity Board' (NORWEB) for its electricity. After this point, it became 'NORWEB plc', which merged with 'North West Water' in 1995 to make 'United Utilities'. The utility was sold to E·ON and the distribution network to become a part of Electricity North West.


Until 1972, the gas supply in Blackpool was provided by 'North Western Gas Board'. Following 1972, however, it became a region of the British Gas Corporation.
