After being founded in 1948, 'Yorkshire Electricity Board' were responsible for the majority of the electricity in Yorkshire, including Harrogate. After privatisation was implemented by the Thatcher government, however, the company was forced to go private and start competing in the new free market. It was then bought by 'American Electric Power' (AEP) and 'Public Service Company of Colorado'. Then, in 2001, 'Innogy plc' decided to acquire the company for a 94.7% stake, eventually becoming 'Npower'.
Gas in Harrogate, like the whole of Yorkshire, was provided by 'North Eastern Gas Board', and was so between the years of 1948-1972; however, after this point it became a region of the British Gas Corporation.
