Up until privatisation in 1990, Darlington was supplied by 'North Eastern Electricity Board' (NEEB) for its electricity. Thereafter, the company became part of the nationwide competitive market. It was taken over by 'CalEnergy', an american energy corporation in 1996. This company formed a subsiduary that was named 'CE Electric' which acted as managing company for Northern Electric.


Darlington was supplied by its regional gas board 'Northern Gas Board' for its gas between the years of 1948-1973; however, this only lasted until it became a region of the British Gas Corporation thereafter.
