    Natural gas is a fossil fuel formed when layers of buried plants and animals are exposed to intense heat and pressure over thousands of years. These animals and plants originally produced an energy that came from the sun, and it is stored in the form of carbon in natural gas. NG is combusted to generate electricity, allowing this energy to turn into power. Natural gas is a non-renewable resource. However, it is clean, convenient to use and easy to transport, therefore it is called as an ideal fossil
