I don't have an engineering background so I apologize in advance if this seems like a silly question.
So I noticed natural gas in my area is a lot cheaper than electricity. So I was asking myself why not get a natural gas generator to produce electricity?
My utility company charges .17 kwh for electricity and .35 per Therm/100 cubic feet for NG. A 10kw generator uses about 200 cubic feet NG per hour. So that's .35x2 = .70 for 10kwh. Or .07 per kwh.
Of coarse there's the initial costs for the generator too.
Am I doing this correct or am I missing something?
