If you’ve got the geography, energy can be free. Residential wind energy, or small-scale windpower, can lower your electric bills by 50% – 100%. This is technology as old as civilization, reliable, clean, and beautiful.
A system generally costs $6,000 – $22,000 and typically pays for itself within six to 15 years. Because wind turbines are large structures — they can be 80-120 feet tall — residential wind energy systems are an optimal home renewable energy sytems for homeowners that own at least one acre of land in an area with reliable wind at that height. Local zoning codes and covenants must allow wind turbines.
The cost-effectiveness of small wind power systems depends on a properly designed and installed system and location, location, location.

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 was excellent all around. Knowledgeable, friendly, willing to troubleshoot and correct issues that arose during the installation process.
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.
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.
