Enter as much of your building information as you can into the EDGE software, then choose systems and solutions and watch your savings grow.

Discover the advantages of building green by pinpointing which design options have the best results for the least cost.

EDGE calculates the utility savings and reduced carbon footprint of your green building against a base case. For non-residential buildings, you can see how much extra it costs to build green – and how short a time it takes to earn back the money through operational savings.
