Before privatisation in 1990 Sunderland was supplied by 'North East Electricity Board' for its electricity. After this, it became 'Northern Electric' and was acquired by 'CalEnergy' in 1996. This formed a subsiduary called 'CE Electric' which managed Northern Electric.
Between 1948 and 1973 Sunderland's gas supply was provided by 'Northern Gas Board'; however, then became a region of the British Gas Corporation.
