BERLIN, CONN., March 28, 2005 – Yankee Gas representatives will be showcasing natural gas cooling, desiccant dehumidification and distributed generation (DG) technologies at the CBIA Health and Safety Conference and Expo on March 31. Sponsored by the Connecticut Business and Industry Association, the expo will be held at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington from 8:45 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Natural gas, found in abundance in North America, is a versatile fuel used to power space conditioning systems, manufacturing processes and even generate electricity. Natural gas-fired absorption and engine-driven cooling are reliable, energy-efficient options that reduce summer electric load to save on demand charges, while emitting less pollution than other fossil fuels. Desiccant dehumidification systems that remove humidity and moisture from the air can also be paired with cooling technologies for comfort, safety and efficiency. Distributed generation (DG) 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 expo who can provide information about the efficiency and value of natural gas and gas technologies, along with financing options to help you get that new equipment installed in time for the upcoming cooling season.
