Before privatisation in 1990, Salisbury's electricity connection was organised by 'Southern Electricity Board'. It then became 'Southern Electric'. In 1998 it joined with 'Scottish Hydro Electric' to form 'Scottish & Southern Energy plc'. The company now trades as what we know today as 'SSE'.
Between 1948-1973 Salisbury was served by 'Southern Gas Board' for its gas needs; however, after this point it became a region of the British Gas Corporation.
