BERLIN, CONN., March 28, 2004 – Yankee Gas representatives will be showcasing natural gas air conditioning and distributed generation (DG) technologies at ConstruCT, the Construction and Facilities Management Annual Conference and Exposition, Wednesday, March 30 at the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center in Cromwell, Connecticut. The expo, sponsored by the Construction Institute, will run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Natural gas, found in abundance in North America, is a clean, reliable fuel that can be used to power a variety of mechanical systems. Natural gas-fired absorption and engine-driven cooling are reliable, energy-efficient options that reduce summer electric load, reducing demand charges and emitting less pollution. 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.

Yankee Gas Services Company (Yankee Gas) is Connecticut’s largest natural gas distribution company, delivering safe, reliable natural gas service to approximately 194,000 customers in 71 cities and towns. Yankee Gas is expanding Connecticut’s energy options and increasing customer choice by extending the availability of clean, efficient natural gas throughout the state.
