Scottish and Southern Energy plc

A rather anonymous company named Southern Gas Networks is about to start yet another phase of essential gas main replacement works in Farnham, this time on Station Hill.

It's rather convenient that the company responsible for notifying residents and planning to minimise disruption during the works is not a domestic supplier of energy.  Of course I wouldn't want to suggest that this fact would affect how Southern Gas Networks views relations with residents during the works.

But it is worth pointing out that Southern Gas Networks is owned by a holding company, Scotia Gas Networks.

And it's also worth pointing out that Scotia Gas Networks is, according to Wikipedia at the time of publication, 50% owned by Scottish and Southern Energy plc, who some readers may recognise as their domestic supplier of energy.
