Super Insulation

Did a wind survey online and our house shows Level 2, barely adequate for wind energy. I wonder how accurate that is.

As I edited the December Energy Update, I was doing a bit of research into other wind power, super-insulated houses, and what we might be able to do here. I'd like to experiment a little, but I'm not sure how economical it is.

I have been thinking larger scale, but perhaps I should go smaller scale. Maybe I should build another smaller building, go with small scale and try to do low level heating, maybe see if I can make a solar collector that heats one water heater, or even add another shed, a small scale workshop, that's super-insulated, and see if I can drastically reduce the power usage on a small scale.
