Building a House Powered With Solar & Wind

We are going to be building a house in Montana. We want to use solar power and windmills. I am wondering if anyone here has had experience using them and what you can tell me about them. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

You need to check out theprice of Batteries and how many you'll need,since your energy is stored in Batteries[not Car Batteries] they are REALLY expensive and you'll need a bunch.depending on how big your house is and how many solar panels you plan on using.same for wind power..you will probably find it cheaper by far to just go the conventional way and hook up electricity..
