I'm not sure where you got that figure from, but a quick check on the National Grid accounts, suggests that you are quoting Revenue rather than Profit. About half of that Revenue was generated in North America, rather than in UK. Actual Profit was about £4 billion and after tax profit about £2 billion. They also have to reinvest in their existing infrastructure and that comes to about £7 billion a year.
