Subject: TRANSFER OF PALISADES TO NUCLEAR MANAGEMENT COMPANY

Discussion:

On May 15, 2001, Nuclear Management Company, LLC (NMC), began managing
operations at the Palisades Nuclear Plant following U.S. Nuclear
Regulatory Commission approval on April 19, 2001, to transfer operating
authority for the plant to NMC. The NRC acted on a request from Consumers
Energy Company to amend the plant's license to identify NMC as the
operator of Palisades. Consumers Energy will continue to own the plant.
Palisades joins Kewaunee, Point Beach, Duane Arnold, Monticello, and
Prairie Island which are also operated by NMC.
