I stand corrected for the surface winds. After checking, they are more powerful/faster than what I expected. They are very slow, but still quite powerful. You could set up a hardened wind power plant there, though I'm not sure how big it will have to be to produce any significant energy.

The idea about a surface Venusian colony is quite fascinating, because of how crazy it is when I picture it – think about wind turbines going on for miles and miles powering up a small colony at the middle, creating a small paradise in the middle of hell.

Still, the cloud tops and Mars are better choices...
