Lancaster was an area that was supplied by 'North West Electricity Board' (NORWEB) from 1948 until 1990, when privatisation was implemented, leaving an open energy marketplace. Thereafter, continuing as a plc company, it merged with 'North West Water' which formed 'United Utilities'. The supply business was sold to E·ON and the distribution network is now part of Electricity North West.
'North Western Gas Board', the company in charge of the gas supply in the lancashire area, used to supply lancaster until 1972; however, thereafter it became a region of the British Gas Corporation.
