DETROIT EDISON SALES SLIP IN MAY

 DETROIT EDISON SALES SLIP IN MAY
 DETROIT, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Electricity sales to Detroit


Edison's industrial customers rose in May for the fourth consecutive month, but cooler weather put a damper on total system sales for the month.
 The 1.1-percent jump in sales to industrial customers indicates the area's mild economic recovery is continuing, company analysts said. Increased production schedules at auto plants led to higher sales, despite two fewer work days compared with the same month a year ago.
 A cool, wet spring dampened air-conditioning use among customers in the utility's southeastern Michigan service area, holding total system sales to 3.32 billion kilowatthours (kWh) last month, down 5.3 percent from May 1991.
 Residential sales slipped 1.9 percent during the month while sales to commercial customers dropped a slight 0.3 percent.
 Total sales -- including sales to other utilities -- were 3.37 billion kWh, compared with 3.59 billion kWh during the same month in 1991.
 System sales in southeastern Michigan through May totaled 16.68 billion kWh, up 2.5 percent from the 16.26 billion kWh in the first five months of 1991. Total sales for the period were 17.91 billion kWh, compared with 18.69 billion kWh during the first five months of 1991.
