BERLIN, CONN., March 2, 2004 (NYSE:NU) – Yankee Gas representatives will be showcasing natural gas air conditioning, desiccant cooling and distributed generation (DG) equipment at the Connecticut Assisted Living Association Trade Show and Conference on Friday, March 5 at the Radisson Hotel in Cromwell. Hours for the show are 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Natural gas is a versatile fuel that can be used to power a variety of equipment in assisted living communities. Air conditioning and desiccant cooling systems are used to regulate temperature and reduce the humidity that can cause mold and mildew and poor indoor air quality. Distributed generation is a form of cogeneration using small-scale on-site power generation. For sites with high electric and hot water demand, DG is a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly method of power generation.

Yankee Gas will have energy experts at the trade show who can provide information on energy equipment for assisted living communities and financing options that make it easy to install new equipment, helping communities to better serve their residents.
