Energy Assessments

Since 2010, LEAP’s professional building scientists have helped more than 6000 central and northern Virginia residents devise and execute plans to make their homes more energy-efficient, comfortable, and solar-powered. We tailor solutions based on individual needs and budgets. Our client relations staff help homeowners identify rebates and connect them with vetted contractors to perform the work if we can’t take care of something in-house. We’ve logged hundreds of training hours to maintain our credentials and keep current in the most effective new technologies.

LEAP is here to serve your energy needs and assist you in accessing all available programming and rebates – the best way to get started is to submit our sign up form so we can help you find the clearest and most cost-effective path forward toward your energy efficiency goals.
