DETROIT EDISON SALES INCREASE 2.1 PERCENT

 DETROIT, Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- A resurgence in local consumer spending and continued strength in the auto and steel industries spurred Detroit Edison (NYSE: DTE) electricity sales in November to a 2.1-percent increase over the same month last year.
 System sales of 3.44 billion kilowatthours (kWh) were recorded last month in southeastern Michigan, up from 3.36 billion kWh in November 1992.
 While residential sales increased only 0.1 percent to 905 million kWh, reflecting mild temperatures that reduced home heating needs, sales to commercial customers jumped 4.1 percent over November 1992.
 Moreover, industrial sales increased 3.9 percent to 1.6 billion kWh, led by sales to steel manufacturers which rose 11.2 percent from the same month last year. Sales to auto customers increased 6.6 percent.
 Total sales for the month -- including sales to other utilities -- increased 7.2 percent to 3.7 billion kWh compared with 3.5 billion kWh in November 1992.
 Year to date through November, the utility's sales in southeastern Michigan were up 5.8 percent from the first 11 months of 1992 -- 39.3 billion kWh this year compared with 37.1 billion kWh last year.
 Total sales for the period were 42.7 billion kWh, up 6.4 percent from 40.1 billion kWh during the first 11 months of 1992.
