Crown Gas: About Us

Crown Gas & Power History

Crown Gas & Power’s history stems back to 1928 when our current Chairman’s grandfather sold household goods such as, fire lighters, candles and lamp oil from the back of a horse and cart. Crown Gas & Power was created in 2001 shortly after the deregulation of the gas and power markets. We still uphold the traditional values of a family run business and putting the customer first is central to everything we do.
