CONSUMERS POWER ANNOUNCES NEW POWER PLANT MANAGERS

 JACKSON, Mich., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Three staff changes have been announced, effective July 1, in Consumers Power Company's fossil electric generating operation by Robert J. Nicholson, the utility's vice president of fossil and hydroelectric operations.
 Keith E. Spencer, 55, has been selected to assist the vice president in the position of special projects director with responsibility for identifying and resolving strategic issues in support of the overall operations for fossil and hydroelectric generation.
 William M. Ritchie, 46, has been named plant manager of the utility's Justin R. Whiting electric generating site near Monroe with management responsibility for all aspects of electric generation at the Whiting facility.
 Paul C. Hittle, 48, has been named plant superintendent for the company's John C. Weadock electric generating plant near Essexville with management responsibility for all aspects of power production at the Weadock plant.
 Spencer joined Consumers Power in 1962 as an engineer at its Jackson general office. A Jackson native, he earned a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering from Michigan State University, and is a registered professional engineer in the State of Michigan. Since 1983, he has been plant superintendent at the Whiting plant. He was previously director of production and planning in Consumers Power's maintenance and administrative services department and also served as manager of the Michigan Electric Power Coordination Center in Ann Arbor.
 Ritchie held increasingly responsible positions in Consumers Power's Jackson general office and Saginaw-based Central Region operations before being named manager of field maintenance services in 1988. He became plant superintendent at the Weadock plant in July 1991. Ritchie is a graduate of Michigan State University with a degree in industrial psychology.
 Hittle joined Consumers Power in 1967 as a graduate engineer. In 1973 he was promoted to senior engineer, coordinating air and water permit applications. He was named general supervisor in 1976, and in 1977 was promoted to director of environmental activities. Hittle earned a bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering from Ohio Northern University, and is a registered professional engineer in the State of Michigan.
 The Whiting plant's three units and the Weadock plant's two units burn coal and both facilities are capable of producing 310 megawatts of electricity, enough to serve a community of more than 170,000 people each.
 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.
