DETROIT EDISON REACHES ALL-TIME WINTER PEAK DEMAND

 DETROIT, Dec. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Detroit Edison's (NYSE: DTE) 1.9 million customers Monday, Dec. 14, demanded an all-time winter peak record 6,709,000 kilowatts (kW) of electricity during the hour ending at 6 p.m. Customer demand Monday surpassed the previous all-time winter record of 6,685,000 kW set last Monday, Dec. 7. The Dec. 7 demand toppled a 3-year-old peak demand record of 6,675,000 kW set Dec. 20, 1989.
 Monday's usage marks the third consecutive month of record-setting demand. Monthly peak usage records also were set in October and November.
 In winter, the demand for electricity typically peaks later in the day when customers return home, turn on the lights, turn up the thermostat, cook dinner and, around the holidays, switch on holiday lights.
 Based on the average monthly residential customer's consumption of 500 kilowatthours, Monday's peak demand equals the amount of electricity needed to power 1,000 homes for one year.
 Detroit Edison's all-time demand peak of 9,133,000 kW was set Aug. 2, 1988.
