Before privatisation in 1990, Wrexham's electricity supply was provided by 'Merseyside and North Wales Electricity Board' (MANWEB). After this point, it was renamed MANWEB plc and acquired by Scottish Power. Scottish Power was also then acquired by 'Iberdrola' in 2007.


Between 1948-1973, Wrexham's, just like the rest of wales's gas was provided by 'Wales Gas Board'; however, after this point it became an area of the British Gas Corporation.
