    The Detroit public lighting department should have an interconnect with Detroit Edison so power availability should not ever have been considered to be the cause of this situation.  

    The question I have is what was the basis of the reason for the order to shed load and why was it given.  

    Why did the need to shed load arise?

    Was it completely artificial?

    This incidient needs to be evaluated from the standpoint of Detroit public lighting department as an operating electric utility and what its responsibilities are and how those responsibilities were affected by the Detroit emergency manager.
