Yankee Gas to Highlight Cooling and Distributed Generation Technologies
at Construction and Facilities Management Expo
Mary B. Ingarra
BERLIN, CONN., March 25, 2004 (NYSE:NU)
– 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, Tuesday, March 30 at the Radisson Hotel in Cromwell, Connecticut. The expo, sponsored by the Construction Institute, will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Natural gas is a versatile 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 to save on demand charges. 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 its booth who can provide information about the value of natural gas and gas technologies, and financing options that can help get that new equipment installed in time for the upcoming cooling season.
