Yes, most of the grid peaking power plants use natural gas nowadays – natural gas has been used to generate electricity since its transportation was made possible in the very early 1900s. The cleanest-burning fossil fuel, natural gas is most efficient when used in a combined-cycle mode, using both steam turbines and gas turbines.
Yes, there appear to be many natural gas power plants, considering that 23.9 percent of all energy created in the U.S. came from natural gas-fired plants in August 2010. These natural gas power plants are powered through using the gas to heat water to produce steam to run a steam turbine, using the gas to run a gas-powered turbine, or a combination of the two known as combined-cycle units. These units use a gas-powered turbine, but use the waste heat from the turbine to produce steam.
