ELECTRIC UTILITY RESTRUCTURING IS COMING TO 
ANN ARBOR

BUT, WHAT IS ELECTRIC UTILITY RESTRUCTURING?

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Friday, February 5, 1999

Contacts:	Mr. David Konkle (734) 996-3150
		Mr. David Wright (734) 665-3123

	How will it affect Ann Arbor?  How will it affect me?  Are my
electricity rates going to go up?  Can I choose a different supplier?  I
hear electric utilities are major sources of air pollution, what will be
the effect of these changes in the electric industry on the
environment?  How will Ann Arbor's Franchise agreement affect us all?

	Answers to these and other questions will be addressed at a public
forum on Electric Utility Restructuring sponsored by the Ann Arbor
Energy Commission.   The public forum will begin at 7:30 p.m. on
Wednesday, February 10th.  The forum will be held in the third floor
conference room in the City Center Building.  The City Center Building
is located on the southwest corner of Huron and 5th Streets.  Topics to
be discussed include:

Achieving Environmental Goals in Competitive Energy Markets, presented
by Mr. Thomas Stanton, Technical Assistant to the Electric Division
Director, Michigan Public Service Commission;

What Other States Are Doing, presented by Dr. Martin Kushler,
Co-Director of Utilities Program, American Council for an Energy
Efficient Economy;

Community Choice Options, presented by Mr. Brian Imus, Campaign
Director, Public Interest Research Group in Michigan; and,

Ann Arbor's Proposed Franchise Agreements for Alternative Electricity
Suppliers, presented by the Ann Arbor Energy Commission.

	Forum attendees will have the opportunity to ask the experts questions
about utility restructuring and how it will impact Ann Arbor, other
communities, and Michigan's environment.  This is the place to be if
you've heard about this issue and want to learn how it will impact you.
