'North Eastern Electricity Board' used to supply Hexham's electricity; however, after privatisation in 1990, the market was liberated and was therefore open to competition, like it is now. It was acquired by 'CalEnergy' in 1996 and formed a subsiduary called 'CE Electricity' to manage it.
Between 1948-1973, all gas in Hexham was provided by 'Northern Gas Board' until it became a region of the British Gas Corporation.
