Re: Sad

I wonder how hard it would be to power an entire house on a natural gas generator...

You would think NG cars would take off considering that 1 therm would be cheaper than 1Gal of US fuel.

Wouldn't save you any money, the thermal efficiency of a small generator is not very good.

Exactly. It's for backup use only, and it's pricey to run those things during extended outages, as piston engines are usually 20% efficient at best.
