No one looks as good bald as Kellie Pickler. But no, I just chopped off a whole lot of it.

A lot of them probably did, but have used it already.

There's also an unexplained phenomena that when you use a gasoline powered generator, the gasoline you put in it initially, but some dark magic, disappears.

The smart people over at CERN are trying to work out the physics on that one.

Most people use inefficient gasoline generators, anyhow.

Living here in the third-world, where power comes and goes for no reason, most of my neighbors have installed "whole home" generators. They kick on automatically and are powered by the home's normal natural gas pipe.

They are pretty slick machines, but expensive.

Out of curiosity, how would the price of that home generated electricity compare to the normal grid supplier?

I have to imagine it's much more expensive, but haven't done the calculation.

Natural gas is dirt cheap now. I heat and cook with natural gas and my bill is about $88 a month (3500 sqft home). But the generator is about $8000 installed. Electricity is about 8 cents a KWH.

I'm sure there is some cost comparison that's been done but the generator is really a back-up and not a primary source.

Sounds cool. In Ireland, especially in rural areas, the only gas comes in bottles.

And you have to keep a tank of diesel ready, all the time.

I own two gensets. A natural gas powered one for the house with an automatic transfer switch and a gasoline powered one for use at my cabin. The gasoline one is a Honda EU3000i and is as quiet as they come from the factory. The NG one is fitted with an oversize muffler system and is barely discernible when running. The cooling fan on the NG unit makes as much noise as the exhaust. If the NG line stops providing, I can run the unit on propane with a few bits of plumbing and a twist of the mixture valve.

My whole set-up at home cost $2800 plus a couple of afternoons worth of time and some beer. It's 6.5KW, which is the smallest unit recommended to run the well pump.

You don't live in the burbs west of DC. I got estimates for replacing a 480 sqft ground-level deck last year. The cheapest estimate was $11,500.
