Norweb PLC, originally the North West Electricity Board, was a British electricity supply and distribution company. It supplied electricity to about 4.7 million industrial, commercial and domestic customers in the North West of England. The Board was originally formed as part of the nationalisation of the electricity industry by the Electricity Act 1947. The assets of the Board passed to Norweb plc in 1990, which was privatised in a stock market floatation later in the same year.
Norweb plc was acquired by Northwest Water in 1995 for £1.83 billion. The combined water and electricity companies became United Utilities (UU). The customer base for the electricity supply arm was subsequently sold off in 2000 to TXU as Norweb Energi. TXU was itself acquired by Powergen in 2002.
Powergen was re-branded as E.ON in 2004, and is one of the world’s leading investors in energy with around 9 million customers. E.ON is investing heavily in renewable energy generation and manages one of the UK’s largest wind farms.
E.ON is Britain’s second largest gas and electricity company and offers a range of competitive tariffs with a good history of customer service.
