Bay State announces growth strategies to cope with changes. Anon. Pipeline Gas J., July 1996, 223(7), 65--66.

Operations of a major gas distribution company in New England are described in three separate energy business segments. Key initiatives in an expansion programme designed to capture new business opportunities are reviewed. Deregulation, increased competition, and unbundling of commodity services are expected to lower costs, improve customer choice, and provide attractive business opportunities. Non-regulated energy products and services to 100,000 customers represent annual revenues of $18 million. The services include gas marketing, propane sales, energy management services, low-interest energy loans, water heating leasing, and leasing of oil-to-gas conversion burners. The company has an equity interest in a 240-megawatt electric power plant in Springfield, MA.
