King's Lynn used to get its electricity from 'Eastern Electricity Board'. However, after 1990, and privatisation, it continued under the name of 'Eastern electricity' as a plc company. It was acquired in 1995 by 'Hanson plc', then again by 'Texas Utilities'. It then began its journey towards its current state: It was afterwards bought by 'Powergen' who would subsequently become a part of 'E·ON' who's operations rebranded in 2004. The distribution network is now owned by UK Power Networks, who are the DNO for King's Lynn.


Between 1948-1973, King's Lynn's gas supply was provided by 'Eastern Gas Board' until it became a region of the British Gas Corporation.
