In Great Britain, we've had free choice of energy suppliers since 1990; however, some areas still seem to lean towards their pre-privatisation provider for one reason or another. The most popular supplier in the Gloucester area is EDF Energy.

The electricity in Gloucester used to be provided by 'South Western Electricity Board' until privatisation in 1990 when it was turned into a plc company. After various takeovers, the company was sold to EDF and the name was discontinued. EDF then sold the company on to PPL in 2010 who rebranded it to 'Western Power Distributon', the current DNO for Gloucester.


Between 1948-1972, gas used to be supplied by 'South Western Gas Board'; however, after this point, it became an area of the British Gas Corporation.
