FERC ACCEPTS CONSUMERS POWER-WOLVERINE TRANSMISSION SERVICE AGREEMENT

FERC ACCEPTS CONSUMERS POWER-WOLVERINE TRANSMISSION SERVICE AGREEMENT
 JACKSON, Mich., Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumers Power Company announced today that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has accepted a transmission service agreement between the utility and Wolverine Power Supply Cooperative, Inc., for interruptible transmission service under Consumers Power's "TR" open access transmission tariff.
 Under terms of the agreement, which becomes effective Nov. 1, 1992, Wolverine will purchase up to 70 megawatts of non-firm transmission service from Consumers Power, reservable on a weekly basis, through July 1993.
 The agreement enables Wolverine to receive electric capacity and energy it purchases from The Detroit Edison Company via Consumers Power's transmission system.
 "This sale of transmission service is a demonstration of the openness we've maintained for other utilities seeking access to use Consumers Power's transmission system," said David V. Voigt, the utility's vice president of electric transmission. "Hopefully, this service agreement will be the first in a continuing pattern of other utilities availing themselves of the use of our transmission system at FERC-approved rates," Voigt said.
 FERC's acceptance of the service agreement follows a July 1992 settlement agreement resolving previous differences between Consumers Power and Wolverine over ownership rights in Consumers Power's transmission system.
 Wolverine Power Supply Cooperative, Inc., provides electric generating and transmission services to seven rural electric distribution cooperatives, with more than 140,000 customers in 35 counties in Michigan's Lower Peninsula. Wolverine's member cooperatives include: Cherryland Electric Cooperative; O & A Electric Cooperative; Oceana Electric Cooperative; Presque Isle Electric Cooperative; Top O' Michigan Electric Company; Tri-County Electric Cooperative; and Western Michigan Electric Cooperative.
 Consumers Power Company, the principal subsidiary of CMS Energy Corporation (NYSE: CMS), is Michigan's largest natural gas and electric utility serving almost 6 million of the state's 9 million residents in 67 of the 68 Lower Peninsula counties.
