CONSUMERS POWER COMPANY'S RESIDENTIAL GAS COSTS LOWER THAN OTHERS BY 10 PERCENT

 JACKSON, Mich., Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumers Power Company's residential natural gas customers -- all 1,304,000 of them, representing more than one-third of Michigan's 9 million people -- are paying heating costs 10 percent below what all other gas distribution utilities in the state charge for residential service. In addition, Consumers Power is announcing today that the cost of gas will be lowered an additional 2 percent beginning Dec. 1, the start of the winter heating season.
 The sharp disparity in costs between Consumers Power and other Michigan gas distribution companies has enabled the Jackson-based utility to add more than 20,000 new residential gas customers in the past 12 months.
 "Our residential gas customers enjoy a clear cost advantage which saves them a considerable amount of money throughout the year," said Michael G. Morris, Consumers Power's chief operating officer. "We anticipate continued strong growth as we add residential, commercial and industrial customers to our system."
 Consumers Power Company, the principal subsidiary of CMS Energy Corporation (NYSE: CMS), is Michigan's largest natural gas and electric utility serving 6 million of the state's 9 1/2 million residents in 67 of the 68 Lower Peninsula counties. It is the nation's seventh- largest gas distribution utility serving 215 cities and villages including suburban Detroit, Bay City, Flint, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Lansing, Pontiac and Saginaw in 40 of the 68 Lower Peninsula counties.
