Run the costs on running a Natural Gas unit, I've heard it can be pricy.

You mention outdoor unit getting stolen, were you thinking of mounting it 
inside and piping it outdoors? I always thought something like an gasoline 
RV unit w/ electric start converted to natural gas (there will be a output 
reduction doing this) could be tucked away well in a house (garage vented 
outdoors, maybe crawlspace cubby) and provide enough to run the fridge, a 
laptop and a router. Might not be so loud either.

Neat stuff, if I had my own place I'd probably try to pick up a 30kw 
diesel with a double walled basetank. Almost bought one years ago for my 
wanna-be web hosting company in VaBeach, I think I almost had one for 
$2500 or so with 160 hours on it. They're out there.
