DETROIT EDISON SETS ALL-TIME WINTER PEAK DEMAND RECORD

 DETROIT, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Colder weather helped spur customer demand for electricity Wednesday to a new winter peak of 6,832,000 kilowatts (kW), Detroit Edison (NYSE: DTE) reported today.
 The record was achieved for the hour ending at 7 p.m. and surpassed the previous demand record of 6,813,000 kW set Dec. 13.
 The new winter peak continues a trend in which seven monthly demand records were shattered in 1993, including the company's all-time peak demand.
 Despite the shutdown of the Fermi 2 nuclear power plant for repairs following a Dec. 25 incident which damaged the turbine and generator, Detroit Edison is able to meet the record winter customer demand with its other power plants.
