DETROIT EDISON SALES IN SOUTHEASTERN MICHIGAN RISE IN FEBRUARY

 DETROIT, March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Detroit Edison's (NYSE: DTE) electricity sales, bolstered by renewed consumer confidence and colder weather, rose 2.4 percent in February from year-ago levels.
 Total system sales -- those to customers in southeastern Michigan -- were 3.37 billion kilowatthours (kWh) last month. Sales included a February peak demand record, set Feb. 1.
 Sales to residential customers rose 8.2 percent from February 1992, reflecting cooler temperatures and more home heating. Commercial sales increased 5.6 percent, an indication of an improving economy.
 Despite sales gains among auto and steel manufacturers, other industrial customers, because of a shorter sales period, used 9 percent less electricity than last year, leading to a 3.2-percent drop among all industrial customers.
 Total sales for the month -- including sales to other utilities -- fell 6.6 percent to 3.45 billion kWh.
 Year to date, the company's system sales in southeastern Michigan through February were up 3.1 percent from the first two months of 1992 -- 6.95 billion kWh in 1993 compared with 6.74 billion kWh in 1992.
 Total sales for the period were 7.33 billion kWh, off 1 percent from 7.41 billion kWh during the first two months of 1992.
