SWALEC is one of the leading gas and electricity suppliers in Wales. SWALEC used to be an electricity supply and distribution company, before it was bought out in 1996 following the de-regulation of the electricity supply industry in the UK.

History of SWALEC
SWALEC Gas was set up in 1997 to take advantage of the deregulation of the gas market in the UK. The gas and electricity business under the SWALEC brand was sold to British Energy in 2000, including the SWALEC retail brand. Hyder retained the SWALEC electricity distribution business and renamed it Infralec. Hyder was later bought by Western Power Distribution in September 2000 for 565 Million pounds and renamed the previously known Inflarec to WPD South Wales. Both SWALEC and Hyder’s branding still remain the property of South Wales Electricity Board and a brand name used by SSE.
