Any of you know of one the these small turbines in use near you? Looks like just a small stream can provide some 24/7 energy. Don't require wind, nor sun neither. Reading some about them now. Looks like you need a couple of banks of batteries and a good invertor to convert to house current. Biggest expense seems to be the batteries and the invertor.
If this is at all feasible for a place in the country to produce enough electricity for your own needs that could be quite a savings in the future. Just read that 1/3 of rural household budgets is spent on energy & heating.
I'd be interested in reading what you got to say about this subject.
