Sometimes we forget that the energy markets in the UK were regulated and each area could only be supplied by their local gas and electricity boards. However, even now that we have full control of our energy supply, people are still swaying towards their historical supplier. For example, in Maidstone, the most popular provider is EDF Energy.

History

Electricity

The electricity supply in Maidstone used to be supplied by 'South Eastern Electricity Board' (SEEBOARD). This was the case between 1948 and 1990. However, after this point it was victim to privatisation and was forced to turn plc. In 2002 it merged with '24Seven Utility Services' under ownership of the 'LE Group'. This newly branded company would become part of EDF Energy in 2003. The distribution company was bought out by 'Cheung Kong Holdings' and now runs under the name of 'UK Power Networks', the current DNO of Maidstone.

Gas

Maidstone's gas was supplied by 'South Eastern Gas Board' between 1948-1972; however, the British Gas Corporation claimed it thereafter to become an area of its new network.
