Our founder’s experience in leading a successful handyman business in college afforded him the foresight to begin another forward-thinking venture. By being one of the first to combine energy consultations with construction in founding EDGE Energy, he became an innovator in the “home performance contracting” arena, which has since grown to incorporate renewable energy and green building solutions.
With over 45 employees, EDGE designs and installs energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions for both homes and businesses. We also work with many neighborhoods, co-ops (like Lincoln Park) and state and municipal governments that have grants or contracts to improve the health and efficiency of several thousand homes per year. As of late 2016, we will have updated over 11,000 homes.
Our entire staff is well trained and dedicated. From our installers, foremen, and office staff to our quality assurers and inspectors, everyone on the EDGE team works to make sure the job is done right the first time.
We understand how every system in a building works together and our team takes into account the most durable and sustainable options to implement (or even go beyond) the most up-to-date codes and best safety practices in every job we do. We value good building science, safety, and performance, so providing the best craftsmanship for our customers is our top priority.
The EDGE Energy team is comprised of locals from Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC who we train and promote from within. We also offer apprenticeships for those starting their careers and learning the ins and outs of the industry.
At EDGE, we know that the most inexpensive solutions are usually not the best. That’s why we are appropriately priced in the market to be able to provide true quality for our customers. If you’re looking for the best solutions done right, EDGE Energy is your answer.

Company Description »
EDGE Energy is a highly-regarded Residential, Commercial, and Government renewable energy systems installer and “green” building contractor which is licensed, insured, and bonded in all counties of VA, DC, and MD. We design and install custom solutions for energy efficiency and renewable energy systems with pride and with proven track records. Our special focus is completing projects which decrease utility bills and energy consumption by 25% to well over 100% – even creating homes that are “net-positive.” An Energy Audit is the first step to your energy efficient home!
Visit our project maps page to learn about homeowners in your neighborhood that have worked with EDGE in the past. Remember, EDGE Energy works with HOA’s, civic groups, trade organizations, office pools, or just simply any GROUP of organized homeowners interested in completing blocks of energy audits AND retrofit services like weatherization, duct-sealing, or air-sealing, and attic insulation. Many special pricing offers have been extended in the past due to the hard work of various “Neighborhood Champions” – those who have dedicated extra time to organizing group meetings, gathering email distribution lists, and assisting with scheduling.

Edge Energy was excellent all around. Knowledgeable, friendly, willing to troubleshoot and correct issues that arose during the installation process.
I was completely satisfied by Edge Energy. They have consistently designed and reliably installed strong performance energy innovations for my home. Indeed the only reason that I installed SunPower panels was due to their recommendation.
Edge Energy responded quickly to my inquiries and provided clear answers. The technicians who oversaw the installation process were professional and I learned a great deal while interacting with them.
Edge Energy clearly prefers installing SunPower systems. They were professional and technically informed. They were reasonable and accommodating with contractural matters. The installation crews were polite and courteous. They did neat work and were very competent. They were extremely responsive to address problems that arose. I would recommend them without reservation. They put a good face on SunPower.
A friend recommended SunPower and Edge Energy and my expectations were exceeded. I have and will recommend both companies.
