MPSC RE-AFFIRMS CONSUMERS POWER COMPANY'S MCV ORDER

 JACKSON, Mich., May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) Wednesday strongly re-affirmed its earlier approval of an order settling electric rate issues involving Consumers Power Company and the Midland Cogeneration Venture (MCV). Wednesday's order rejected four petitions for rehearing including those filed by the State of Michigan Attorney General's Office and the Michigan Municipal Cooperative Group, among others.
 MPSC Chairman Steve Fetter stated that the order "... is intended to provide a final resolution to a prolonged dispute over Consumers Power Company's electric purchases and allow parties to move on to the crucial issues relating to marketplace competition. Consumers' electric rates after this order, compared to 1987 when this case began, will have increased at less than half the rate of inflation," in a news release issued by the Michigan Public Service Commission.
 "We commend the MPSC for concluding the regulatory process on this issue in an expeditious manner," said Michael G. Morris, the utility's chief operating officer.
 On March 31, 1993, the MPSC issued a final order resolving outstanding issues between Consumers Power and its electric customers over the MCV, in a case dating back almost six years.
 Consumers Power Company, the principal subsidiary of CMS Energy Corporation (NYSE: CMS), is Michigan's largest natural gas and electric utility serving almost 6 million of the state's 9 million residents in 67 of the 68 Lower Peninsula counties.
