Celebrating our Centenary 2024
For the past century, Counties Energy has been rapidly building and maintaining an extensive electricity network, delivering safe and reliable power.
Sharing our history

Having served our community since 1924, our approach to providing and utilising energy has undergone significant transformations. Whether driven by shifts in legislation, governance, technology, or demand, our journey has played a pivotal role in shaping our present identity and influencing our future to better serve our customers. We remain determined in our commitment to continuous innovation, ensuring that we adapt to the evolving needs of the next century.

This celebration serves as more than just a reflection on our past achievements; it honours the unwavering dedication and hard work of our team, as well as the ongoing support from our customers, partners, Board, and the Counties Energy Trust. It also stands as a testament to our enduring pledge to innovate, embrace change, operate sustainably, and propel the future of energy within our region and beyond.
