Operated by the Lancashire Electric Power Co, which was incorporated by the Lancashire Electric Power Acts, 1900 to 1906. The 1900 Act gave the company the right to supply electrical energy in bulk to local authorities or other authorised undertakers. The 1906 Act added the right to supply electrical energy direct to users of power. The company supplied electricity to the whole of Lancashire south of the Ribble, except for the boroughs of Manchester, Salford, Liverpool, Bootle and Southport and the central part of Bolton.
