Option B, I did the same 10 years ago. Only I had a 6000 hopper bottom already. 5" hp, 30 air system. 3ph converter for the dryer and air. I maybe would consider 2 smaller bins. or maybe pour the concrete for 12 ring bins so you can add rings later. I did the one 48' x 12 ring 70k bu bin. Works good. I removed and sold 3 smaller bins, 2-24's and 1-30. Made it a nice clean site, with one other 36' bin. I put a drive over pit to set my auger hopper in, Sure saves time and the back.. You should be able to apply for the Energy Grant of 10K, but you'll spend 2k on the Grant writer. Maybe its changed but I don't think so.. Its just a matter of jumping through the hoops. Most farmers around here get it..
Edit: I bought a SuperB SQ20 dryer with quantum controller. Controller hasn't worked correctly since new. If you buying Any new dryer get a written warranty for the controller and dryer for at LEAST 3 YEARS..
