The flow will dictate the number of KW you can generate Mike but the storage batterys help out by saveing the capacity when you are not using it, and the water is more reliable than wind unless you are in Alberta, I think I would go with a 10KW wind mill out there and maybe a 10KW natural gas gen set if I could get a gas line in. You can mount the rad into a heat duct and scoop the heat from the engine too. With natural gas you could also get some heat from the exhaust with out worrying about it clogging up with carbon.
