93. Law of averages
just like you are more likely to get smoked by a soccer mom in a Ryder truck than this thing, you are less likely to:

Heat your house and water with wood you cut and split. It grows back faster than I can cut it.
Drive a biodiesel vehicle and run it in farm equipment.
Ride a bike to work or drive a motorcycle that gets 60 mpg or more, weather permitting.
Drink well water and collect rain water to use in toilets and for irrigation (this was a particular pain in the ass, but works.
I even have a neato little windmill that will trickle charge my battery in the winter.
Solar isn't that effective in my latitude or I could light my whole house with 12volt dc or invert to 120 where necessary.

Like I said 90+ percent of people don't do this because it is a pain in the ass and costs more, just making a bet.
