Yes there are Natural Gas gensets. As for your question if they can be used indoors, the answer would be no. Normally a genset is placed inside of a concrete structure with louvered vents that open when they run, the unit is exhausted outside, and there is a fire suppression system in place. It would cost more than it is worth for you to set something up like this.

This same question was asked back in 2008 in this forum. Indoor Standby Generator.... So it has already been discussed and beaten like a proverbial Dead Horse.

Yup, there are plenty of indoor units available out there. They do require proper ventilation, and exhaust piping, etc.

You can also buy natural gas conversion kits for many gasoline generators.
