DETROIT EDISON POSTS RECORD SALES YEAR

 DETROIT EDISON POSTS RECORD SALES YEAR
 DETROIT, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- New customers and temperature


extremes last year lifted Detroit Edison (NYSE: DTE) to record electricity sales in 1991, slightly surpassing the previous record set in 1988.
 Eight consecutive months (May to December) of record sales led to the new annual sales record of 41.08 billion kilowatthours (kWh) of electricity, up 1.2 percent from 1990. The previous record was 40.95 billion kWh.
 Summer electricity sales were bolstered by hot weather and high air conditioner usage, and an early start to the winter heating season contributed to monthly records in the latter part of the year.
 The weather was reflected in a 6.2-percent increase in residential sales in 1991 to 12.22 billion kWh. Commercial sales during the year also were up -- 2.1 percent from 1990, to 8.87 billion kWh -- helping to offset a 2.4-percent decline in sales to industrial customers in 1991.
 December sales to industrial customers, down a modest 1.7 percent from December 1990, was helped by the addition of two new automobile facilities in the utility's service areas. December sales also included a 5-percent gain in residential usage and a 4.3-percent gain in commercial sales.
 Detroit Edison provided service to 13,000 new residential customers and 1,400 new commercial customers in 1991.
