History

Electricity

Milton Keynes's electricity supply used to be supplied by 'Southern Electricity Board' until 1990 when privatisation was implemented. Thereafter it began its time as 'Southern Electric'. In 1998 the company merged with 'Scottish Hydro Electric plc' in order to form 'Scottish & Southern Energy plc' the distribution network and utility that we know today.

Gas

From 1948 up until 1973, Milton Keynes had its gas supply provided by 'Southern Gas Board'. However, after this point, it became a region of the British Gas Corporation.
