Perhaps I should have added a smiley to indicate I was being facetious.

Diesel, Gas, Natural Gas, Propane, and kerosene generators all burn fuel in an ICE to spin the input shaft of the generator, which then produces the electricity. Coal and Geothermal generators are variants on the steam generator, which nuclear also falls under. Heat up the water, which turns to steam, which is then used to spin the generator, producing electricity. In other words, you can't use electricity to generate electricity. So no, I don't believe you will be seeing an all electric electricity generator anytime soon. BC.
