History

Electricity

Between 1948 and 1990, the electricity in Huddersfield was supplied by the 'Yorkshire Electricity Board', just like in the majority of Yorkshire. After this point, the company became 'Yorkshire Electricity Group plc.'. After the acquisition of the company by 'American Electric Power' (AEP) and 'Public Service Company of Colorado' (Part of XCel Energy'), it was once again sold on in 2001 to Innogy plc for a 94.75% stake. This would eventually become part of Npower.

Gas

The gas in Huddersfield between 1948-1972 was supplied by 'North Eastern Gas Board'; however, after this point it became a region of the British Gas Corporation.
