Norwich's electricity used to be supplied by 'Eastern Electricity Board'. After privatisation in 1990, it was renamed 'Eastern Electricity' and acquired by Hanson plc in 1995. After being sold again to US firm 'Texas Utilities', it made a great step towards its current form: being acquired by 'Powergen' who would subsequently be acquired by German utility E·ON, who's operations were rebranded in 2004.

The distribution business was owned by EDF; however, they are now owned and operated by UK Power Networks along with the old electricity companies 'London Electricity' and 'SEEBOARD'.


From 1948, Norwich used to be supplied by 'Eastern Gas Board' for its gas requirements; however, after in 1973 it became a region of the British Gas Corporation.
