Before privatisation in 1990, Exeter's electricity was supplied by 'South Western Electricity Board' (SWEB); after this point, it became SWEB Energy. After many takeovers, the name 'SWEB' was discontinued by EDF in 2003. In 2010; however, EDF decided to sell on the company to PPL, who then rebranded it once more to become 'Western Power Distribution', how we know it today.


As of 1948, Exeter had its gas needs supplied by 'South Western Gas Board'; however, after 1973, it became an area of the British Gas Corporation.
