History

Electricity

Luton used to be supplied by 'Eastern Electricity Board' for its electricity. In 1989 it was renamed 'Eastern Electricity' and was acquired by 'Hanson plc' in 1995. After been sold to US company 'Texas Utilities', it made a large step towards how we know the company today: it was acquired by Powergen who would then become part of German utility E·ON. The distribution business was sold to EDF; however, it is now owned by UK Power Networks.

Gas

Between the years of 1948-1973 the gas supply in Luton was provided by 'Southern Gas Board'; however, after this point it became a region of the British Gas Corporation.
