Middlesbrough Energy Offices
Just 5 short miles from the centre of Middlesbrough lies one of the operational offices for Northern Power Grid in Stockton on Tees.
Before 1990, Middlesbrough's electricity supply was provided by 'North Eastern Electricity Board' (NEEB); however, after privatisation it was renamed 'Northern Electric' and was acquired by American corporation 'CalEnergy' just 6 years later in 1996. This then formed a subsiduary called 'CE Electric' in otder to manage Northern Electric.
'Northern Gas Board' used to be the providers of gas in the Middlesbrough area between 1948-1973; however, after this point it became an area of the British Gas Corporation.
