EDGE Energy Frequently Asked Questions

How quickly can EDGE Energy provide services?

All of the company's solutions are custom-tailored to each home, and timelines will vary based on scope, county, and program. However, most Energy Audits are done within two to three weeks, Home Performance projects completed within one to two months, and Solar Installations within two to three months.

What warranties does EDGE Energy offer?

Solar installations come with the full 25/25/25-year warranty from SunPower to include parts/power/shipping+labor, and the company's own 25-year warranty on installation. Home Performace projects and EV installs come with two-year workmanship warranties. New roofs come with a standard 10-year workmanship warranty.

Is my home a good candidate?

Whether you have a new home, an old home, or anything in between, they all have opportunities for improvement. If your goal is saving energy, EDGE Energy can help navigate whether solar or home performance, or both are a good fit. The company often qualifies each home remotely by using several design tools and having a brief conversation with homeowners about their energy usage, needs, and equipment. 

How is EDGE Energy different from other solar providers?

EDGE Energy specializes in SunPower equipment, which provides Equinox, the only complete home solar solution designed and warranted by a single company, with a battery storage option. The company is also the first and only Master-certified installer in the area, which means both its customer service and quality of installation are recognized and certified to be the best. The company has several ways to go solar including cash discounts, financing from 1–20 years, and Lease/PPA options for those who qualify.

How is EDGE Energy different from other Home Performance contractors?

EDGE Energy is the running national "Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Contractor of the Year" for the last three years now, which means the company installs excellent projects with proven results, recognized and certified by ENERGY STAR and the Building Performance Institute (BPI). The company can also take you from an Energy Audit assessment all the way to getting any amount of needed work done. EDGE Energy offers financing options to make it all happen.

Are there incentives for solar or home performance work?

Yes, the most well-known for solar is the 26% Federal Tax Credit, which is available to qualified homeowners who purchase solar energy systems for their home. There are also several local and state rebates available and Solar Renewable Energy Credits which the company will help qualify and submit for. In home performance, depending on your area in Maryland, there may be rebates available for qualifying homes and homeowners from Maryland Energy Administration, the Utility, or local programs. Ask EDGE Energy to see if you qualify and how it works.

Do EDGE Energy services add value to my home?

Yes, solar panels are shown to add around 4% of a home’s value during a sale and makes it sell faster than similar comps, based on national studies. Having a healthier, quieter, more comfortable home with low utility bills from home performance work is also a proven selling point in the area. EDGE Energy also includes Pearl Certifications on its projects which come with sellables including whitepages for future home buyers and real estate agents, descriptions for MLS listings, and an Appraisal Addendum, so that the home appraisal takes into account the value of your upgrades. The company has helped several homeowner refinance, remove PMI, or sell their homes with the help of energy upgrades and Pearl Certification reports.

Peter G Silver Spring, MD

I recently went Solar with EDGE. They provided excellent service from the beginning. Answered all of my questions, provided education and worked with me to get the best system and financing for my situation. I had spoken with two other companies before EDGE and it seemed like those companies tried to steer me into their packages that didn't work for me. I was frustrated and almost gave up on Solar and canceled my appointment with EDGE. I'm glad I didn't. It was obvious from the beginning they planned the project specifically to my house and my needs. From planning, to installation, to activation and even after they guide you through the whole process. It was a big project and not without issues but most they brought to my attention with a plan to remedy and the one complaint I raised they were quick to rectify beyond my expectations. Also they were very respectful of my scheduling concerns with a young child and covid related concerns with people entering my home. Overall they were very professional and provided great customer service.
