    We as well dont have NG in our area. Oh, and oil isnt unfamiliar for me either.....family has been selling it since the mid-forties. But pellets and corn are certainly more renewable than NG. Im not afraid of not selling pellets stoves at all...its a one-time sale.....id more worry about not selling pellets. I like to think I can change with the times as well.
    Noone has mentioned safety and cleanliness tho. What about the annoying instance where someones house gets vaporized from NG? I know, I know, that NEVER happens....yes, it DOES, its just that its not publicized well....all the gas customers would be in a panic.
    As for corn, that sounds good, but again, the trucking would kill us here in the Northeast.....and as for the rats and mice...ew.

    Roac,

    There are no natural gas lines where I live, so you have a choice of:

    -Oil (heating oil comes from Venezuela, and Hugo Chavez can go f himself)
    -Propane (derivative of petroleum refining, OPEC or Hugo Chavez, they can both go f themselves)
    -Electric
    -Alternative energy
