Our Staff featured image

EDGE has a full-staff of project managers, technicians, Installers or tradesmen that are credentialed and seasoned to support in residential and commercial projects. For instance, over the last seven (7) years, EDGE has gained valuable knowledge of Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) protocols and software systems through its successful work in the DHCD SWC, CIF, DOE, and WAP programs.

The EDGE Team is enthusiastic and engaged to help customers by providing face to face consultation sessions and show the opportunities for making their environment a place of relaxation and contentment.

Our strategic mission is to target utility bill savings and improvement opportunities within the building structure or mechanical systems that have a high-rate of payback and any items which will net a return after a capital expense. The comprehensive energy audit will target basic cost-effective measures for reducing the electrical/gas/water consumption of the home or building in common and private areas to increase comfort and well-being.

EDGE Staff team can easily assist Building Owners in designing and installing energy-efficiency solutions, testing to BPI, ASHRAE, and DOE-compliant Quality Control (QCI) guidelines to achieve on-time and on-budget services.

When initiating a project, adequate planning is conducted to facilitate submission of all deliverables, quality control procedures, contract management, and scope control. EDGE’s experienced management team effectively supports the energy auditors and QC Staff to help reduce risk, facilitate greater accuracy of project estimates, project schedules track performance, and clearly identified communication channels to optimize project performance.

Every single job is post-tested to make sure that the work was done properly, and that the work left the property in a safe condition based on BPI standards. EDGE Energy’s process includes significant quality control where everyone on Team EDGE is accountable for the success of the overall project.

EDGE Energy is a vertically integrated “Performance” contractor licensed, bonded, and insured in (DC, VA, and MD). The staff we have currently in place effectively converts energy opportunities into Energy Audits completed to BPI Standards, while our Installation Crews implement energy-saving solutions to improve comfort, reduce energy bills, and increase the operational safety of our clients’ properties.

Over the last five (5) years, EDGE has worked with numerous State, Federal, and Utility contracts receiving ARRA, TARP, or other CGBC-Block grants which carried mandatory Davis Bacon, Living Wage, and/or DOL-compliant payroll reporting.
