Tapping the ratepayers: Are you concerned about the 8-percent PUD rate increase? Well, get used to it because Grant PUD has promised the bond rating agencies (Moody’s, Fitch and S&P) an 8-percent rate increase per year up to and including 2015, in return for the AA3 bond rating from Moody’s and Fitch’s AA bond rating.
