1917 The Newcastle-upon-Tyne Electric Supply Co took control of the principal electricity undertakings in the south of County Durham and North Yorkshire. To supply the newly acquired area, the company built the North Tees Power Station on the banks of the River Tees at Billingham.

The station was designed by the engineering consultants Merz and McLellan. It used two Metropolitan-Vickers 20MW turbo-alternators to generate electricity.
