Data on the number of households by local authority without an electricity or gas mains supply are not available.

An estimate of the number of households off the gas grid at Government Office region can be derived using data from the English House Survey (EHS), produced by DCLG. In 2008, based on the EHS, there were around 467,000 households in the south-east that did not have a mains gas connection. The number of households without a mains electricity connection is too small to be reliably estimated from a sample survey such as the EHS.
