DETROIT EDISON PLANT RANKS SECOND AMONG NATION'S COAL-FIRED PLANTS

 DETROIT EDISON PLANT RANKS SECOND AMONG NATION'S COAL-FIRED PLANTS
 MONROE, Mich., Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Detroit Edison's Monroe Power Plant last year generated the second-largest amount of electricity among all coal-fired plants in the United States, according to the Utility Data Institute, a Washington-based research company.
 The plant, largest in the Detroit Edison (NYSE: DTE) system, generated 19.8 million megawatthours (mWh) in 1991, providing enough electricity to fill the needs of nearly 2.4 million people in southeastern Michigan.
 In 1991, total electricity production at Monroe was second only to Georgia Power Co.'s coal-fired Plant Bowen, which generated 21.8 million mWh.
 "Monroe Unit 3, which was ranked ninth in the nation in efficiency, contributed to maximizing the plant's total output while reducing costs to Detroit Edison's customers," said Frank E. Agosti, senior vice president.
 The Monroe Power Plant includes four 750-megawatt (MW) units brought into service between 1971 and 1974. The plant's total generating capacity is 3,000 MW.
