*Sales are normalized on a system-wide rather than jurisdictional basis. Since most of our weather- sensitive load is within Wisconsin, and the weather variables for normalized adjustments are based on weather at Milwaukee's General Mitchell International Airport, all adjustments are applied to Wisconsin sales, which effectively means the actual and weather-normalized sales in Michigan are identical.
