In all renewable energy projects, "start at the other end" - decide upon what your actual energy needs are, AFTER having done a very careful audit, and a minimisation of use of power  (particularly electrical power) - look to find alternatives to using electricity wherever possible - insulate until it hurts - then do your sums carefully for an "all in one" solution.

(Even if you aren't able to do all the work in one fell swoop, it pays to do it in stages, where necessary making provision for later work - it can save a small fortune)
