History

Electricity

Before privatisation in 1990, the electricity in Dover came from 'South Eastern Electricity Board' (SEEBOARD). After this point, it became a plc company and was renamed 'SEEBOARD plc'. In 2002 the company joined '24Seven Utility Servies', owned by LE Group, rebranding it to become EDF Energy Networks in 2003. The distribution network was then reacquired by 'Cheung Kong Holdings' and renamed UK Power Networks, the company that we now know for being the DNO for Dover.

Gas

Gas in Dover was supplied by 'South Eastern Gas Board' between the years of 1948-1972; however, after 1972 it became a region of the British Gas Corporation.
