Re: Would definitely not willingly go back to gas.

You can burn gas under a pot or you can burn gas in a power station, convert it to electricity, ship the electricity to a house and then turn it back into heat to heat a pot.

How can the second ever be as efficient as the first, however good the final "electricity to heat" conversion is?
