1.) The easiest way to count the energy is as that of domain walls. Both of the configurations you have drawn have two domain walls. Each domain wall costs energy $E\Delta/2$, so both configurations have energy $E\Delta$ above the ground state. I don't understand either how one would count the spin of a domain as 1. Perhaps that is the spin/site? 2.) To see ...
