October 22, 2018 06:46 PM

National Grid has good news for customers. Assuming we have a typical winter, they say customers can expect their natural gas and electricity bills to be lower than usual.

For natural gas, National Grid estimates that a typical household will spend $507 for 713 therms of natural gas between Nov. 1 and March 31. That's $31 less than last winter, or a savings of 5.8 percent.

For electricity, typical household bills are expected to run $6 to $8 less per month than last winter, a savings of about 6.9 percent to 8.8 percent. The estimate is based on monthly usage of 600 kilowatt-hours.

Again, it's important to note that these lower prices for electricity and natural gas are just an estimate as energy costs and usage are impacted by weather conditions.
