Additional Notes:

We have been doing a efficiency improvement and RE projects to our house for many years. Along the way we have incorporated almost all available technology. Our fuel oil usage has gone from about 800 gallons a year to 200. Our electric bill has gone from about $150 per month to $60 at the same time we doubled the size of our family room and added central AC. Payback is better than the stock market.
