Most western manufactured green energy stuff is too expensive, yes.
But if you check out some chinese manufacturers you'll get a pleasant
surprise.


That's my plan. Roof windows (with blinds for summer) are one
effective way but I need
something that works on winter nights and cloudy days here to heat
both water and house. I need about 3 kw of heat in total. Much of it
can come from solar.

No, Im not.
You have to look at the current and the future value of money.
Money that isnt spent today on large capital items like wind turbines
or solar cells can be invested which will produce dividends that will
pay your power bills forever more.
I looked at the option of wind power and useing a small example of
a 1KW wind turbine , installed cost UK 3000 pounds, that around $0K
AUD.

I chose instead to not go down that road aand invested $0K at 8%
which gives me a dividend of $00 PA which pays my entire power bill.
Not just the power bill for my small air conditioner.
A lot of people think that power or energy thats made from renewable
sources is somehow free as they dont have to pay power bills, but they
ignore the fact that the same capital invested will in most cases more
than cover all the bills you will incurr.

good credit and can buy energy saving equipment.

            Many if not most decisions are based on ability
to pay cash, or on available credit, and even with bad
credit it might be possible to buy an old gas guzzler car.

There is a lot of water in the Azores and never goes below plus 2ºC
Get a small heat pump and feed the compressor with cells or wind with
a battery.
You should be able to get a FOP of 5. Meaning with 1 KWh you get 5KWh
of heat.
In your case the only energy you use is to run the compressor and fan

Trabalhará na maravilha
