Croydon is in the SEEBOARD region and was supplied by 'South Eastern Electricity Board' until 1990, when privatisation was put into place. The privatised 'SEEBOARD plc' combined with '24Seven Utility Services' in 2002 which was under the ownership of the LE Group. This then rebranded to EDF Energy Networks. The distribution company was bought out by 'Cheung Kong Holdings' and renamed 'UK Power Networks', which is the current DNO for Croydon.


Croydon was part of the 'South Eastern Gas Board's supply area for gas between 1948-1972; however, it thereafter became a region of the British Gas Corporation.
