From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The South of Scotland Electricity Board, was formed as a result of the Electricity Reorganisation (Scotland) Act 1954. On 1 April 1955, the two southern Scottish Area Electricity Boards were merged into the South of Scotland Electricity Board (SSEB). It was the predecessor to Scottish Power and Scottish Nuclear.

SSEB generated, transmitted and distributed electricity throughout the south of Scotland, including the former regions of Strathclyde, Lothian, Fife, Central, Borders and Dumfries and Galloway and a few towns in northern England.

In January 1990 it shut down a reactor at the Hunterston A Magnox Power Station. The second reactor was shutdown on 31 March 1990, the day before the Nuclear Generation assets (Hunterston A, Hunterston B and Torness Power Stations) were vested with Scottish Nuclear.

It was privatised in 1991.
