Yorkshire Electricity Board was founded in 1948 and was responsible for the electricity supply in the majority of Yorkshire. After Thatcher's Government privatised the electricity industry in 1990, the company became Yorkshire Electricity Group plc. The new public limited company, however, was acquired by American Electric Power (AEP) and Public Service Company of Colorado (part of XCel Energy). In 2001, Innogy plc, once again acquired Yorkshire Electricity Group plc for a 94.75% ownership, eventually becoming part of Npower.


The gas in Yorkshire used to be supplied by North Eastern Gas Board as of 1948; however, in 1972 became part of the British Gas Corporation.
