The proposal also incorporates estimated customer savings of $76 million related to the expected impact of tax reform in the U.S. and includes the use of deferred credits, which National Grid said will mitigate the impact on customers' bills.

National Grid expects the New York Public Service Commission to approve the proposal in the spring, with new rates effective in April, it said.
