EDGE Energy is well known in the Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC area for promoting energy efficiency and assisting property owners in becoming energy efficient. Although, we do much more than simply help with energy efficiency; we also encourage sustainability and green building.
Energy efficiency is a term that can be applied to virtually anything, from homes to appliances. It is defined as using less energy to provide the same service. Therefore, an LED light bulb is more energy efficient than a traditional incandescent bulb. A home that is adequately insulated and air sealed is more energy efficient than leaky home.
Sustainability is a bit more complex. In order to be sustainable, a process must not:
A home that produces more power via solar panels than it needs, therefore, is using a sustainable source of energy. Using cellulose insulation is another sustainable, green building practice, since the materials is made of recycled newspaper. Many materials used in traditional building release VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and other harmful chemicals into our environment, while green materials are safe for your health and the planet.
EDGE Energy practices sustainable, green building in our work. We can help you incorporate green building practices into your Virginia, Washington, DC or Maryland home or commercial property. Caring for our local environment and the future is one of the largest drivers in our commitment to green, sustainable building. Additional benefits include:

Edge Energy was excellent all around. Knowledgeable, friendly, willing to troubleshoot and correct issues that arose during the installation process.
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.
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.
A friend recommended SunPower and Edge Energy and my expectations were exceeded. I have and will recommend both companies.
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.
