Massachusetts electricity customers could be facing a steep increase in their winter bills, National Grid warned on Wednesday.

Citing the high price of natural gas used in generating the power, the utility company said winter electricity rates taking effect on Nov. 1, will be sharply higher than they were last winter.

“In total, the monthly bill of a typical residential electric customer using 600 kWh (kilowatt-hours) will increase from $179 in the winter 2021-2022 season, to approximately $293 for the winter 2022-2023 season,” National Grid said.

That’s a 64% increase year-over-year.
